Air Force veteran Anna Paulina Luna is leading the GOP primary to replace Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL).
Anna Paulina Luna is backed by Donald Trump.
No other GOP candidate was in double digits.
Former President Donald Trump’s endorsement of Air Force veteran Anna Paulina Luna has propelled her to the front of the line of GOP candidates looking to replace Rep. Charlie Crist (D) in Florida’s 13th congressional district.
According to a survey from St. Pete Polls, Anna Paulina Luna has 36.7 percent support from Republican voters in the upcoming primary, far ahead of former Lisa Murkowski aide Amanda Makki (6.4 percent), former Florida state House candidate Matt Tito (2.7 percent), and non-profit founder Audrey Henson.
While indeed indicative of her strong candidacy, Luna still faces a tough battle to secure the nomination, given that 52.1 percent of respondents said they have not yet chosen a candidate, as reported by the Hill.
Despite the preponderance of undecideds, the poll also showed that Luna’s support further increased (62.4 percent) when those surveyed learned that she was the only candidate endorsed by Trump.
“The undecided bloc of voters also significantly decreased when it was noted that Luna is endorsed by Trump, falling to 22.2 percent,” noted the Hill. “In a head-to-head matchup between Luna and Makki, Luna brought in 60.6 percent support compared with Makki’s 13.9. Just more than 25 percent of voters remained undecided.”
Trump released a statement yesterday touting the power of his endorsement.
