Giddy supporters show up for Congressional challenger’s appearance with Trump loyalists

A large enthusiastic crowd showed up Wednesday night for an event in support of Congressional candidate Laura Loomer, who was joined by Trump loyalists Michael Flynn and Roger Stone.

A food truck serving Mediterranean cuisine drew a long line of Loomer supporters who took their food inside for the campaign event at the Wildwood Community Center. Those attending the event paid $65 for general admission.

A meet-and-greet prior to the start of the event gave those in attendance a chance to meet Loomer, Flynn and Stone, who has previously appeared in The Villages.

Loomer is hoping to unseat U.S. Rep. Daniel Webster. A centerpiece of Loomer’s campaign is the insistence that the 2020 election was “stolen” from Trump.

Loomer recently qualified for the ballot and will be facing Webster in the Aug. 23 GOP primary.

Flynn, who was Trump’s first National Security adviser, stressed the importance of electing Loomer and other Trump supporters to take back the GOP from U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Loomer said the “hostile takeover of the Republican Party is taking place right here in the 11th Congressional District when we unseat do-nothing Daniel Webster.”

Loomer stressed Webster’s poor attendance and claimed he has missed many votes including failing to vote against the impeachment of President Trump. She pledged that when she is elected she will never miss a vote.
