Republican congressional candidate Judson Sapp picked up an endorsement this week from the nation’s largest Pro-Trump youth organization.
Students for Trump, a national youth organization dedicated to re-electing President Donald Trump, formally backed Sapp’s bid for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District. The organization is part of Turning Point Action and is chaired by Trump loyalists Charlie Kirk and Ryan Fournier.
“We are proud to endorse Judson Sapp for Florida’s 3rd Congressional district! As a businessman and supporter of President Donald J. Trump, Sapp knows a thing or two about keeping Florida’s economy strong and fighting for our God given rights! Please join us in supporting him!” said Students for Trump in their announcement.

Sapp, who was raised in Clay County, Florida, is the CEO of W.J. Sapp Railroad Contractor, which operates throughout the Southeastern United States. He is one of 10 Republicans looking to replace Congressman Ted Yoho who is retiring at the end of his current term.
“I am honored to be endorsed by the country’s largest Pro-Trump youth organization. Students for Trump understands it is crucial for us to not only re-elect President Trump, but to ensure he has allies in Congress. I’ll stand with President Trump, and I’m thankful Students for Trump stands with me,” said Sapp.
The pro-Trump group joins a growing list of national endorsements compiled by Sapp, including Congressman John Rutherford, Congressman Vern Buchanan, Congressman Cliff Stearns, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Second Amendment advocate Dana Loesch, and many more.
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.
