Latina Veteran Launches GOP Congressional Bid In Florida’s 13th District
Air Force veteran Anna Paulina Luna, 30, announced this week that she is running for U.S. Congress in Florida’s 13th Congressional District against Democrat Rep. Charlie Crist.
Luna, who is Hispanic, made the announcement in a video that she posted on Twitter to her 112,000 followers, writing: “My name is Anna Paulina Luna and I’m running for Congress. I will no longer standby as the socialist agenda infects the youth of our nation. I need your help fundraising as I am going up against fundraiser for the DCCC.”
Luna has an even larger platform on Instagram where she has nearly a quarter of a million followers and she repeatedly appeared on Fox News during her time at Turning Point USA.
In an in-depth interview with The Daily Wire, Luna indicated that the issues she cares about the most are fighting for capitalism and against socialism, preserving the Second Amendment, taking care of the environment, and taking care of America’s military veterans.
1. What inspired you to get into politics?
During my first enlistment with the USAF, I was stationed in Missouri. At the time I did not own any firearms and I lived off-base. I had a home invasion experience at my first duty station that, for the most part, left me completely traumatized. It was during my senior year of college that I decided to use my social media platform (around 30,000 people at the time) to speak on women using firearms to defend themselves.
The more I spoke on this topic, which to me was common sense, the more I realized companies did not want to work with me. It completely evolved at that point. I realized that if I didn’t start to speak up then I was part of the problem with society. The first video I did was on the hypocrisy of mainstream media on using Hispanics as props for their open border agenda. It completely exploded after that.
2. As a self-described “Chicana,” what do you say to other Hispanics who listen to places like CNN and believe that the president is racist and that enforcing immigration law and securing the border is racist?
I was one of those people that listened to CNN. It was after I saw a segment on CNN where they placed a camera crew on women and children that were being brought to this country illegally that I realized that the news I trusted had become straight-up propaganda. In traveling around the country, I have spoken to thousands of other Hispanics about this exact issue.
I am always respectful in my messaging and welcome differing opinions because it is my opportunity to educate them on the dangers that go hand-in-hand with illegal immigration. A secured border saves lives on both sides. There is nothing racist about enforcing your countries laws and borders and frankly, Hispanics are not the only illegals in this county. The fact is that the largest voting minority in this county is Hispanic Americans, specifically Mexicans, which is why the DNC is attempting to turn this into a racial topic. It is part of the President’s job description to keep our country safe. Without borders, we have no nation and there are millions of people waiting to come here legally. We must respect the process.
