“Luna brings big conservative bona fides to the table with her work at Turning Point USA and appearances of Fox News,  and could be on President Donald Trump’s radar to help win back the U.S. House of Representatives.” -(Source)

Luna also tweeted that some national Hispanic folks are backing her candidacy, including the “leaders of the top conservative #Hispanic organizations and movements in the country.”

Before Luna can face Crist in the general election, Luna must first defeat Amanda Makki in the Republican primary race. Makki recently announced her campaign, raking in a quarter of a million dollars in donations.

Rep. Crist’s seat is one targeted by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
