Far-right activist Laura Loomer announces 2020 congressional bid



Far-right activist Laura Loomer announced Friday that she was launching a congressional bid, filing to run in a heavily Democratic district north of Miami.

Loomer, who has come under fire for anti-Muslim comments, has filed to run as a Republican in Florida’s 21st District, which is currently represented by Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.). Frankel, an outspoken critic of President Trump, ran unopposed in 2018.

“My opponent cares far more about radical leftist special interests, her anti-Semitic colleagues, and protecting criminal illegal aliens from deportation than about her district and constituents here in Florida who she’s supposed to be working for, not against,” Loomer said in a statement.

Karen Giorno, who served as the Florida state director for Trump’s 2016 campaign, will lead Loomer’s House bid, according to the announcement.

Trump Won't Let No. 2 Spy Chief Take Over When Coats Leaves

Source: NYT

WASHINGTON — The White House is planning to block Sue Gordon, the nation’s No. 2 intelligence official, from rising to the role of acting director of national intelligence when Dan Coats steps down this month, according to people familiar with the Trump administration’s plans.

The decision to circumvent Ms. Gordon, who has served as the principal deputy director in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, is likely to upset Republicans and Democrats in the Senate. They have expressed doubts about Representative John Ratcliffe, Republican of Texas, who is President Trump’s choice to be the next Senate-confirmed leader of the agency.

Mr. Trump did not allow Ms. Gordon to deliver a recent intelligence briefing, according to a person familiar with the matter. Opposition in the White House to letting her serve as acting director has raised the question of whether she will be ousted as part of a leadership shuffle at the intelligence director’s office that will be more to Mr. Trump’s liking.

A federal statute says that if the position of director of national intelligence becomes vacant, the deputy director — currently Ms. Gordon — shall serve as acting director.
