Extremist Laura Loomer lost a Florida GOP primary challenge against House incumbent Dan Webster on Tuesday ― but she didn’t quite see it that way. (Watch the clip below.)
“I”m not conceding, because I’m a winner!” Loomer yelled to supporters after her 6-point defeat, per video posted by News 6′s Mike DeForest.
“What we now have done tonight is basically, truthfully shocked the nation,” she continued. “Now we have further exposed a corruption inside our own feckless, cowardly Republican Party. And that is strictly the explanation why, right, I made a decision to go against the RINO Republican Daniel Webster, do-nothing Daniel Webster.”
Loomer, a self-proclaimed white nationalist and Islamophobe who suggested the Buffalo supermarket shooting was arrange by Democrats, got closer than many expected on Tuesday. In 2020, the Donald Trump-backed Loomer won a GOP primary, but lost the final election in a landslide.
