Republican congressional candidate Kat Cammack continues to gain traction in her bid to represent Florida 3rd Congressional District, scoring her latest endorsement from Congressman Ted Yoho‘s brother.
Tom Yoho, the older brother of Representative Yoho, is a Vietnam War Veteran and former small business manager. Now retired and, Yoho enjoys hunting and fishing.
Cammack, a small business owner and former deputy chief of staff for Rep. Yoho, has consistently been rolling out new endorsements since the start of her campaign. Today’s endorsement joins a list of backers including U.S. Senator Rand Paul and We Build the Wall founder Brian Kolfage and several mayors across the state.
“I am incredibly honored to have received this endorsement from Tom Yoho. I have long been inspired by Tom’s dedication to America and his service during the Vietnam War,” Cammack said.
“As a small business owner, I understand the challenges he faced trying to navigate the government’s overbearing weight on those running businesses in America. If elected, I look forward to working for veterans and small business owners like Tom to ensure prosperity in Florida’s Third Congressional District and across the United States.”
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.
