Ted Yoho Aide Ranked as One of the Leading Young Conservatives in the Nation
On Friday, Red Alert Politics released the first part of its “30 Under 30” profiles of rising young conservatives and a Florida Republican activist is on the list.
In 2011, Kat Cammack moved from Colorado to north Florida to help large animal veterinarian Ted Yoho, a political newcomer, run for Congress. Yoho pulled off one of the largest upsets in Florida political history when he edged U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., a 24 year veteran of Congress, in the Republican primary and Cammack played a large part in the win.
While Stearns and two other Republican candidates focused on the usual array of mailings and TV spots in Gainesville and Clay County, Yoho and Cammack waged a successful grassroots effort across the largely rural district. Besides putting in long hours, they reached out to small counties and towns that the other candidates largely ignored. Despite having a novice candidate, Cammack was smart enough to recognize letting Yoho be himself would pay dividends.
In the Red Alert Politics profile, Cammack looks at national politics and what the GOP needs to do for 2016. Take a look and keep an eye on Cammack. She’s one of the best young conservative strategists in Florida and perhaps the nation.
