Trump-backed GOP candidate loses primary, but insists she "won"

See what Donald Trump hath wrought. 

The Trump-backed far-right candidate for a Florida GOP primary lost to the more moderate incumbent. But, in true Trump form, Laura Loomer (who sounds like a WWF wrestler to me) is refusing point blank to accept the results.

"I'm not conceding because I'm a winner!", she blathers. "The reality is, this Republican Party is broken to the core ... we have further exposed a corruption within our own feckless, cowardly Republican party." "We are losing our country to big-tech election interference." Sound familiar? And, she wonders why it's broken?

Ms. Loomer is situated somewhere to the right of Genghis Khan on the political spectrum. She is an avowed and unrepentant white nationalist and Islamophobe, who appears to believe that the Buffalo supermarket shooting was a set-up by Democratic elements. She has been banned from Twitter for anti-Islamic hate speech (also familiar).

And she is, in her own words "a winner". Except that she lost.
