U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho scored a key endorsement on Thursday in Republican primaries, that of President Donald Trump.
Congressman Ted Yoho of Florida is doing a fantastic job and has my complete and total Endorsement! Tough on Crime and Borders, Ted was really helpful on Tax Cuts. Vote all the way for Ted in the upcoming Primary – he will never let you down!

Yoho, who is a member of the House Freedom Caucus with Trump’s chosen gubernatorial candidate, Ron DeSantis, is running for his fourth term in Florida’s 3rd Congressional District — an inland North and Central Florida district running from Orange Park to Ocala.
Yoho, who had Freedom Caucus chair Rep. Mark Meadows stumping for him last week, is well-positioned against Republican insurgent Judson Sapp.
As of the end of June, Yoho had over $430,000 on hand, comparing favorably to Sapp’s $133,012 bankroll.
Trump’s endorsement may not move the needle in this race, which has had no indication of being particularly close; however, rest assured the President will find a way to take credit for victory.
