Citizens Fund Endorses Kat Cammack for Congress


ATLANTA, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today released the following statement, announcing that the Super PAC associated with the nation’s largest Tea Party group has endorsed Kat Cammack for Congress in Florida’s open 3rd congressional district:

“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 18thprimary election.”
