Gainesville, FL - Kat Cammack, Republican candidate for Congress in Florida's Third Congressional District, is announcing her "Young Americans for Kat Coalition."
This coalition, which is the first of many that she will unveil in the coming weeks as a testament to the growing grassroots strength of her campaign, includes students from the University of Florida, Newberry High School, and the University of North Florida.
Kat Camack made the following statement in response to releasing her "Young Americans for Kat Coalition":
"As the youngest Republican candidate in the race for FL-03, I am excited to announce our "Young Americans Coalition," which will be the first of many coalitions we will announce in the coming weeks. These young people represent a diverse group of leaders at high schools, colleges, and universities across FL-03, each with unique perspectives and immense experience.
"Millennials and Gen Zs now represent the largest voting block in America. For us conservatives to be effective in winning their support on our issues and in elections, it is imperative that we bring leaders from these generations into our cause with active roles in campaigns up and down the ballot. I look forward to engaging with our "Young Americans Coalition" regularly regarding important issues like education, our national debt, entering the workforce, and advocating for the future of America on Capitol Hill."
"Americans for Kat Coalition" members gave the following statements:
