Republican Anna Paulina Luna is a proven fighter in every sense of the word. The young Latina conservative is running to unseat Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist in Florida’s Congressional District 13.
Anna was raised in the lower-income neighborhoods of Southern California by a single mother. She is the antidote to New York socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that Americans cannot pull themselves up by their bootstraps and must rely on a big government run by members of the Democratic Party.
Anna has announced that she is running to make the United States Congress actually work for the American people, not the insiders and elite oligarchs, and one of her priorities is exposing that identity politics is the political left’s weapon for creating discord and unrest between racial and ethnic groups
Anna will stand as a strong woman for President Trump. Anna will stand as a Hispanic-American for secure borders. Anna will stand as someone who grew up around gun violence to defend the 2nd Amendment. Anna will stand as proof that you can be born into poverty and still work your way out of it. (See brief podcast posted below news story.)
After leaving the Armed Forces, Anna turned her love of country into her life’s work. She is one of the most prominent Hispanic conservative leaders in the country. Anna has served as the Director of Hispanic Engagement for Turning Point U.S.A., a non-profit whose mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government. She currently serves as the Chairwoman of Hispanic Initiatives at Prager University and has appeared across conservative media outlets including Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, NEWSMAX TV, One American News Network, BlazeTV, The Daily Caller, and others.
A proud military veteran, Floridians have applauded her Commitment to public service and her active support and voluntary activities for philanthropic organizations including:
- Force Blue, which retrains and deploys former Special Operations Veterans and combat divers to assist with coral reef and general marine conservation;
- Mission Volant, which provides training and equipment to combat-wounded Veterans to help them develop adventurous skill sets that allow them to live more active and enriched lives;
- Merging Vets & Players, which brings together military veterans and former professional athletes to help each other transition back to a healthy civilian life; and
- Veterans for Child Rescue, a non-profit focused on ending child trafficking.
She and her husband, Andy, live in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Andy is a special forces operator stationed at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa. Anna and Andy met while serving in the USAF and were together when Andy was shot by enemy combatants in Afghanistan, for which he earned a Purple Heart. A decorated warrior, Andy was also awarded the Bronze Star and deployed to the Middle East four times.
