Air Force veteran Anna Paulina Luna has won the Republican primary in Florida’s 13th District and will go on to face two-term Rep. Charlie Crist (D) in November.

Luna prevailed in the crowded primary with 36 percent of the vote with all precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press.

The political newcomer defeated four other Republicans to win the nomination, including Amanda Makki, a lobbyist and former aide to Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Ala.).

“This November I will defeat @CharlieCrist & then I’ll help @realDonaldTrump DRAIN THE SWAMP,” Luna tweeted after her win Tuesday.

Trump later Tuesday night tweeted his congratulations to Luna. 

Nonpartisan political handicapper The Cook Political Report rates the race as “Solid Democratic.”
