Building on a steady momentum of local and national endorsements, Kat Cammack, a Republican candidate running for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, landed an endorsement from Second Amendment activist Mike Weeks.
Mike Weeks, an NRA certified firearm instructor and range safety officer, is the co-owner of a tactical and firearm training company by the name of 2A Tactical and Training. Weeks was selected as the 2017 Southern Regional NRA Volunteer of the Year. The Southern Region of the NRA includes Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and Tennessee.
“Kat is a Constitutional Conservative who will fight for our rights, including our Second Amendment rights, in Washington. Her work with the Alachua County Friends of NRA shows that she is a proven defender of gun rights for the American people and the District,” said Weeks.
“I came to know Kat in her position as the Deputy Chief of Staff and campaign manager to Congressman Ted Yoho, but also as the co-founder of the GRIT foundation. When Kat sees a disparity, she makes a change and provides a solution. She will leave no rock unturned in the Capitol.”
Cammack, a small business owner and former deputy chief of staff for U.S. Congressman Ted Yoho, has consistently been rolling out new endorsements since the start of her campaign. Some of her biggest backers to date include U.S. Senator Rand Paul, We Build the Wall founder Brian Kolfage and several mayors across the district.
“I am honored to receive the support of Mike Weeks. He is a staunch supporter of Second Amendment Rights and has proven that he will stop at nothing to protect them from big government liberals actively seeking to infringe on the Constitution,” said Cammack.”
“As a board member of the Alachua County Friends of the NRA, I have had the pleasure of working with Mike on projects to protect the Second Amendment. The voters of FL-03 can be confident that I will never waiver in my advocacy for gun rights on Capitol Hill.”
In addition to several national endorsements and coalitions released by the campaign since Cammack announced her candidacy, she has been endorsed by a number of gun rights activists including Tony and Sherrie McKnight and others on her Gun Owners for Kat Coalition.
Cammack is one of 10 Republicans looking to replace Yoho who is retiring at the end of his current term.
Also seeking the GOP nomination are businessman Judson Sapp, Clay County Commissioner Gavin Rollins, 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.
FL-03 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.
