Kat Cammack defeated Judson Sapp, Gavin Rollins, James St. George, and six others in the Republican primary in Florida’s 3rd Congressional District. With 98% of precincts reporting, Cammack received 25% of the vote followed by Sapp, Rollins, and St. George with 20%, 15%, and 14%, respectively. No other candidate received over 10% of the vote.
Incumbent Rep. Ted Yoho (R) is not running for re-election, leaving the seat open.
Cammack, a former deputy chief of staff to Yoho, received endorsements from two Tea Party organizations and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who said, “We need to send strong conservatives like … Cammack to Washington who have the courage to take on career politicians and drain the swamp.”
