President Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump on Tuesday campaigned in Florida alongside far-right Republican congressional candidate Laura Loomer.

Why it matters: Loomer is a self-described "proud Islamophobe" who was banned from Facebook and Twitter after criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and making anti-Muslim comments.

  • She won the GOP House primary in Florida's 21st district last month and is now running in the left-leaning district against Democratic incumbent Rep. Lois Frankel, who is expected to easily win re-election.
  • Trump campaign spokesperson Courtney Parella tweeted photos of Loomer and Lara Trump standing with volunteers.
  • The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The big picture: Loomer is among a number of far-right GOP congressional candidates who have won primaries this year, including supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory.

  • President Trump last month congratulated Marjorie Taylor Greene, a QAnon supporter, after she won a Republican primary in Georgia.

Joe Biden is calling for the winner of November's presidential election to select Ruth Bader Ginsburg's replacement on the Supreme Court.

What he's saying: "[L]et me be clear: The voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider," Biden said. "This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016 when there were almost 10 months to go before the election. That's the position the United States Senate must take today, and the election's only 46 days off.
