With nearly all the votes counted, Anna Paulina Luna has a commanding lead over rivals Amanda Makki and George Buck for the Republican nomination to take on U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist in Florida’s 13th Congressional District.
Luna defeated GOP establishment favorite Amanda Makki with 35.61% of the vote at 90% reporting.
The two faced off in a nail-bitter election Tuesday night. In a statement, Luna said she was honored and humbled by the nomination.
“Pinellas Republicans affirmed what they told me on the campaign trail: they are ready for patriotic public servants and are done with career politicians and insiders,” Luna said. “I look forward to unifying the Republican Party and sharing our message of people before party, and country before politics with all voters in Pinellas. I am running to represent all people in Congress and give them the voice they deserve.”
Now, Crist will face his first formidable opposition since he was elected to Congress in 2016.
Despite polling numbers originally predicting an easy victory for Makki, Luna garnered significant support in the critical stretch leading up to the primary.
Luna took the lead in contributions for the past two reporting periods, although Makki has had stronger fundraising overall. Makki was the biggest spender in the pre-primary reporting period, spending $442,799 in July.
Since the start of their campaigns, Luna has brought in just shy of $1 million, and Makki raised more than $1.2 million, as of the end of July.
Luna will start her campaign against Crist with nearly $2.8 million less than the Democratic incumbent, who has $3.1 million cash on hand.
Despite Crist’s monetary advantage and incumbent status, the district is not quite safe. Democrats outnumber Republicans by only 26,678 voters, but there are more than 146,896 no party-affiliated or third-party voters among the district’s 512,570 voters. Pinellas went for former President Barack Obama in both his runs, but favored President Donald Trump in 2016.
She said while concluding her post, – This November my campaign to defeat Charlie Crist will have a surge the district hasn’t experienced in a long time.
