Trump bump for Ted Yoho, as President endorses North Florida Congressman

U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho scored a key endorsement on Thursday in Republican primaries, that of President Donald Trump.

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.
