U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack rounded up more than two dozen Republicans who were elected to the House for the first time last month. Two other Republicans from the Sunshine State--incoming U.S. Reps. Byron Donalds and Scott Franklin--also signed the letter.
Trump insisted Cammack will be an “incredible congresswoman and leader for Florida and praised her as a “successful businesswoman” who “strongly supports our brave first responders and law enforcement, life and the Second Amendment!” The president added, “Kat has my complete and total endorsement.”
On Monday, U.S. Rep. Ami Bera, D-Calif., the chairman of the U.S. House Asia and Pacific Subcommittee, introduced the resolution. U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., the top Republican on the subcommittee, is cosponsoring the resolution.
Cammack, who served as Yoho’s deputy chief of staff and helped him pull off one of the largest upsets in Florida history when he defeated longtime U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., is running in a crowded primary to replace him. Yoho is following through with a campaign pledge he made in 2012 to serve only four terms in Congress.
On Wednesday, Paul endorsed Cammack, a former aide to Yoho who led his campaign when he upset longtime U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., in 2012.
St. George announced on Thursday that he was entering the race, hoping he can follow the same path Yoho, a large-animal veterinarian, did when he upset longtime U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., in the Republican primary back in 2012.
A large animal veteran who worked in North Central Florida for 35 years, Yoho made his political debut in 2012 when he upset longtime U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., in one of biggest upsets in Florida political history.
When he challenged longtime U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., in the Republican primary back in 2012, Yoho said he would serve only four terms in Congress. But Yoho has been weighing running for a fifth term and a new poll shows him in excellent shape if he decides to run again.
“This USDA grant will improve service to over 2,300 residents and bolster local economic development efforts. The grant will be matched with a loan secured by the city for $8.8 million,” Yoho’s office noted.
Sapp challenged U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., last year, taking 24 percent against the incumbent.
The current Republicans in the Florida delegation offer a host of new faces even when compared to only a few years ago. That being the case, don’t expect many Republican retirements in the Florida delegation--but there could be a handful of them.
