"Bye @BarbaraComstock :)," Hogg tweeted a short time after Comstock's race was called.

Lauren Hogg also tweeted that she is "sending my thoughts and prayers to every NRA backed politician tonight."

The Hoggs, along with their classmates at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, have in recent months advocated for candidates that support stricter gun laws. David Hogg was one of the principal organizers of the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C.

The students have railed against politicians who send "thoughts and prayers" after tragedies such as school shootings rather than passing stricter gun laws.

David Hogg claimed that Comstock's staffers "slammed the door" to her office when they saw him and other Parkland students trying to meet with lawmakers.
