Republican congressional candidate Kat Cammack has become one of the top tier candidates to replace Congressman Ted Yoho, her former boss. But questions surrounding her employment, including her credibility with the man she’s looking to replace, have been raised by her opponents in the CD 3 Republican primary race.
A video resurfaced recently in which Chase, at Gainesville City Commission meeting, described himself as “RINO”--which stands for “Republican in Name Only” who voted in support of sanctuary cities.
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.
Last month, Chase, a businessman who served in the Navy where he rose to the rank of commander, filed the paperwork to launch an exploratory committee as he considered entering the crowded Republican primary. Chase officially entered the race on Tuesday.
Chamberlin pointed to his experience in the private sector which has led him to speak on leadership and work with Success Magazine.
Braddy defeated Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe in 2013 but he was plagued by ethics issues, including having hotel rooms and a trip to a strip club paid for by a police union leader with what turned out to be stolen money.
Chase, a businessman who served in the Navy where he rose to the rank of commander, filed the paperwork on Friday to launch an exploratory committee as he considers entering the crowded Republican primary.
“I am absolutely thrilled to receive an endorsement from ViewPAC. I fully support their mission of electing more strong conservative Republican women to the U.S. House,” said Wells.
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.
Rollins kicked off his bid by stressing his service in the Florida National Guard who served overseas in the fight against terrorism, his support of President Donald Trump and his conservative views.
On Wednesday, Clearview Polling and Research, LLC (Clearview Research) released a poll looking at the Republican primary to replace Yoho. While almost half of the likely GOP primary voters--48 percent--were not sure, 35 percent opted for Perry who is currently not running for Congress.
