Among six coalitions of supporters for her campaign for Congress, Kat Cammack has previously released a First Responders for Kat Coalition of almost 40 firefighters, law enforcement and EMS workers. The coalition is made up of hometown heroes who fight each and everyday for the safety of North Central Florida communities and families. Robert Stafford, President of the North Central Florida Chapter of the Police Benevolent Association, gave the following statement in a letter to Cammack: "The North Central Florida Chapter of the Florida Police Benevolent Association, Inc. is proud to inform you of our endorsement of your candidacy for the United States House of Representatives, Florida's 3rd Congressional District. "Our endorsement carries with it our permission for you to use the Association's name, should you wish. "We will ask our members, their friends and families' and all citizens in the district who respect the strong and efficient enforcement of our laws, to cast their ballots in support of Kat Cammack," concluded Stafford. Kat Cammack, the Constitutional conservative candidate for Congress in FL-03, responded by saying: "I am so humbled to have the support of the North Central Florida Chapter of the Florida Police Benevolent Association and the many other departments that have backed our campaign thus far. As a wife of a first responder and the co-founder of the GRIT Foundation, an endorsement from this group means a great deal to me. "The work of the Police Benevolent Association protects the genuine sacrifice of the law enforcement community everyday. Especially given unprecedented and dangerous attempts by liberals across our country to defund and abolish the police, I am greatly motivated to be a voice for those who choose this as their calling. Advocating for our hometown heroes will always be one of my top priorities if I am given the privilege of representing FL-03 in Congress.”
Kat Cammack is a small business owner, a proud wife to a first responder, an alumnus of the United States Naval War College, and the longtime former Deputy Chief of Staff and Campaign Manager to Congressman Ted Yoho (R, FL-03).
