Trump-Republican Anna Paulina Luna has won Florida’s 13th Congressional District, defeating Democrat Eric Lynn and flipping the seat red.
Luna beat Lynn, 53% to 46%, according to election results from the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Office.
Luna held just a wafer-thin edge over Lynn last week, 45.9% to 45.3%.
Luna, one of two Hispanic Republicans running for Congress, last month told Newsmax that a "national shift" is leading Hispanics to join the GOP.
"I think that it's more of a national shift — and you're going to see that among all demographics," Luna said of the Hispanic vote. "It's interesting because the Biden administration and the Democrats like to falsely brand Hispanics as only being Mexicans, and that's simply not the case.
"In the last couple months, you had Jill Biden literally referring to us [as] breakfast tacos; you had most recently [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi [D-Calif.] calling us crop pickers," she continued, saying that "after November, they'll be calling us Republicans."
