Republican congressional candidate Kat Cammack continued to build momentum on Wednesday, announcing that the Republican Liberty Caucus is endorsing her campaign for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District.
The Republican Liberty Caucus is a voluntary grassroots membership organization dedicated to working within the Republican Party to advance the principles of individual rights, limited government, and free markets. Founded in 1991, it is the oldest continuously-operating organization within the Liberty Republican movement.
“Cammack stood firm alongside President Trump in 2016 to fight for the America First agenda and against the threat of socialism,” said Matt Dye, Chairman of The Republican Liberty Caucus.
“The masks have come off, and the socialists are now operating in broad daylight in Washington, D.C. We are proud to endorse Kat in this race because we know she will fight for our values in Congress,” he concluded.
Cammack, a small business owner and former deputy chief of staff for Congressman Ted 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 so honored to have received the support of the Republican Liberty Caucus,” Cammack said in a statement.
“As the Constitutional conservative in this race, I strongly believe in preserving liberty and freedom for the American people. The imminent threat of socialism is growing every day, which is why we must do our due diligence as Republicans to fight for our country’s values and instill notions of liberty for generations to come. If given the privilege of representing FL-03 in Congress, I will never shy away from a fight to advocate for our conservative beliefs against extremists like Ilhan Omar and AOC.”
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.
