Congresswoman Kat Cammack reported on Monday that she raised more than a half-million dollars in the second quarter.
Cammack, a firebrand conservative who represents Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, touted the record breaking quarter in a press release, announcing that her campaign raised $505,473 from April through June. The Gainesville Republican noted that $455,402.87 was raised for her primary federal campaign account, with the remainder of the contributions going to her two affiliated committees, “Kat Victory Committee” and “KAT PAC.” The majority of the donations received came from within CD 3 signaling overwhelming local support for the Congresswoman.
“While my focus has been on working hard to deliver for my constituents in North Central Florida during the first six months of my term, I am proud to announce that our fundraising efforts have put us in a dominant position as we look forward to my re-election campaign in 2022,” Cammack said. “I am humbled and honored by the generosity of those who have given to my campaign. People throughout the region have stepped up to send a clear message that they appreciate and support my willingness to be a vocal leader on issues such as backing the police and first responders, reining in overspending, defending our 2nd Amendment rights, securing our border, ensuring election integrity, delivering broadband here at home and protecting the unborn.”
A former deputy chief of staff for retired Congressman Ted Yoho, Cammack cruised to victory in the 2020 elections, easily dispatching her Democratic opponent, Adam Christensen, on her way to garnering over 57 percent of the vote.
Despite being the youngest Republican woman in the House of Representatives, Cammack has quickly rose to become one of the most prominent conservative voices in her caucus. She recently teamed up with Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan to develop a partnership with Young America’s Foundation (YAF) to create a caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives aimed at fighting back against liberal ‘indoctrination’ at colleges.
The coalition, called the Campus Free Speech Caucus, will aim to educate other legislators about the clear bias against free speech on campuses — an issue that Cammack campaigned on.
Cammack is currently facing challengers from both sides of the aisle in 2022. Republican lawyer Justin Waters has declared his candidacy, as well as Democrats Danielle Hawk and Tom Wells.
