The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund backs Kat Cammack for Congress in FL-03
Gainesville, FL - Kat Cammack, the Constitutional conservative candidate for Congress in Florida's Third Congressional District, is announcing that Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund has backed her campaign.
The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund stands for every American, and is home to millions who have come together to pursue the American Dream and to keep that Dream alive for their children and grandchildren. They work to create a nation where personal freedom is cherished and where all Americans are treated equally, assuring individuals' ability to pursue their American Dream.
Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund gave their endorsement in the following statement:
“For the last eight years, Congressman Ted Yoho has served his constituents well. His was a strong conservative voice in the House of Representatives, and his shoes will not be easy to fill. His former Deputy Chief of Staff, Kat Cammack, is poised to take on that challenge, and we at Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund heartily endorse her effort.
“Kat is a third-generation small businesswoman. She learned as a child how government bureaucrats can make life difficult for job creators, and she knows first hand how smaller government can be helpful. She is a strong fiscal conservative: she supports the Penny Plan, a plan to balance the budget in five years by simply requiring that over that five-year period, the federal government spend just one penny less out of every dollar it spent the previous year, and she supports a Balanced Budget Amendment. She has signed the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge, and pledges to work to repeal ObamaCare and Congress’ special exemption from it.
“Kat is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and says she believes that a sign that says ‘Gun Free Zone’ is ‘an invitation to mayhem.’ She opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants, and supports full funding for construction of a border wall. She supports term limits for Members of Congress, and has signed the U.S. Term Limits pledge.
“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Kat Cammack for Congress, and I urge all voters in Florida’s 3rd congressional district to make a plan to be a voter for her in the August 18th primary election.”
Kat Cammack gave the following response to the endorsement:
"I am so honored to have received the support of the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund.
"I have spent my whole life focused on the American Dream, participating in small business, and preserving the country to allow for economic prosperity. As a young person, I stepped up to run my family sand-blasting company and came to understand the overbearing weight the government has on the American Dream and small business owners. I am focused on longterm solutions for the economy and the American people, instead of the status quo news headlines that are grabbing politicians attention today. If elected, I look forward to preserving the big picture values such as free markets, Constitutional freedom, and democracy."
In addition to releasing more local endorsements and coalitions than anyone else in the race, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund joins other prominent national conservatives and organizations such as Senator Rand Paul (R, KY), Tea Party Express, and The Republican Liberty Caucus in placing their support behind her bid for Florida's Third Congressional District.
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).
