Congressional candidate Gavin Rollins released a new campaign video today promising to honor his commitment to support President Donald Trump on issues that threaten the nation’s safety and freedom.
“We’re experiencing an unprecedented assault on our constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms,” said Rollins. “The attacks on our First Amendment rights are more aggressive than ever, with governors and local elected officials determining that protests are okay but assembling in houses of worship is not. There is crazy talk of defunding police departments as these same far-left extremists attack the Second Amendment rights of citizens to keep and bear arms. As a member of Congress, I will give my unwavering support to President Trump to keep America great.”
In the video, Rollins says, “Our freedom is under attack from Communist China and the radical left. We must fight back. In Congress, I’ll fight alongside President Trump to keep our country safe and free.”
A narrator then connects Rollins’ life of service with his commitment to support Trump.
“Gavin Rollins served under President Trump in a combat zone. He taught students the Constitution, and in Congress, he’ll defend it. As a commissioner, Rollins stood up for life, liberty, and the Second Amendment. He’ll fight alongside President Trump to keep our economy strong.”
Rollins, high school history teacher and captain in the Florida National Guard, is one of 10 Republicans looking to replace Congressman Ted Yoho who is retiring at the end of his current term.
Also seeking the GOP nomination for Florida’s Third Congressional District are businessman Judson Sapp, businesswoman Kat Cammack, Gainesville City Commissioner Todd Chase, former congressional aide Joe Millado, physician James St. George, businessman Ryan Chamberlin, businessman Bill Engelbrecht, businessman David Theus, and businesswoman Amy Pope Wells
CD 3 includes Alachua, Bradford, Marion, Union, Putnam, and Clay counties and is largely made up of Republican voters. Yoho won the red district in 2016 earning 57.6% of the vote.
