Fresh off her impressive victory in the Republican primary for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, GOP nominee Kat Cammack earned an endorsement on Wednesday from the National Right to Life Political Action Committee.
The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) is the oldest and largest national anti-abortion organization in the United States with affiliates in all 50 states and more than 3,000 local chapters nationwide.
“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse [Kat Cammack] for election to the U.S. House of Representatives, to represent the 3rd Congressional District of Florida,” NRLC President David N. O’Steen said in a press release.”
“This endorsement reflects [Cammack’s] commitment to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Congress. We look forward to working with her to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family – unborn children and medically dependent or persons with disabilities, whose lives are threatened by abortion or euthanasia.
“All Florida voters in the 3rd Congressional District who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to send [Cammack] to Congress so that she can work to advance vital pro-life public policies,” he concluded.
Cammack, a small business owner, has been transparent throughout her campaign about her position regarding the life of the unborn. In an ad released last month, Cammack discussed her pro-life stance and outlined personal reasons why she will defend the unborn and advocate for life if elected to CD 3.
“When my mom was pregnant with me the doctors told her, because she had a stroke with my sister, that she wouldn’t be able to have children again, Cammack says in the 30-second spot from July. “So when she found out she was pregnant, the doctors advised her to abort me.”
“When given the choice, my mom chose life. And that’s why I’m pro-life,” Cammack concludes.
I am honored to have received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee. I will always choose life as your leader of Florida’s 3rd District. As a young millennial woman, I hold an important role as an advocate for pro-life policies.#fl03https://t.co/SpowGwYtPs pic.twitter.com/yF6lkRrogR

The former deputy chief of staff for Congressman Ted Yoho pulled off a victory last week, dispatching 9 other Republican candidates by earning 25 percent of the vote and cruising to a well-earned primary win.
With the victory, Cammack will now face off against Democrat Adam Christensen. The matchup, however, bodes well for Cammack, who will benefit from her name recognition and experience in the district.
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.
