LLPH is honored to announce that we are naming Rep. Ted Yoho of Florida’s 3rd Congressional District a Liberty General and are also re-endorsing him for the 2014 midterm elections!
Congressman Ted Yoho has been a stalwart advocate for fiscal responsibility and civil liberties. He has fought against the reckless spenders of both parties by opposing debt ceiling increases and wasteful suspension bills. He recently opposed a $10 million foreign aid package. He has voted against indefinite detention, CISPA, and for increased limitations on NSA spying. He opposes the Patriot Act and is one of the most dedicated members to repealing and defunding Obamacare.
As such the Establishment does not like him and are fielding a primary challenger against him. Here’s what LLPH-ally Rep. Justin Amash had to say about him:
The Establishment is also going after my friend and colleague Ted Yoho in Florida. He’s a principled defender of liberty, and we need him back in Congress next term. You can help him out by March 31 at http://yohomoneybomb.com/.
Congressman Yoho has also been endorsed by Senator Rand Paul for re-election:
“I AM GLAD TO ENDORSE MY FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE TED YOHO FOR RE-ELECTION,” PAUL SAID. “THE THING ABOUT CONGRESSMAN YOHO IS THAT HE HAS BEEN UNAFRAID, AND I THINK WHY HE HAS BEEN UNAFRAID TO DEFEND LIBERTY, DEFEND LIMITED GOVERNMENT AND OUR CONSTITUTION IS BECAUSE HE HAD A REAL LIFE. HE HAD A REAL JOB. AS A VETERINARIAN, HE ISN’T AFRAID TO GO BACK TO HIS PROFESSION AT ANY POINT AND TIME, SO HE HASN’T BEEN AFRAID TO STAND UP TO REPUBLICANS OR DEMOCRATS WHO AREN’T DOING THE RIGHT THING.”
“IN WASHINGTON, WE ARE STILL BORROWING MORE THAN $1 MILLION A MINUTE,” PAUL CONTINUED. “WE KEEP ELECTING PEOPLE BUT IT’S NOT CHANGING. IT’S ONLY GOING TO CHANGE WHEN PEOPLE BEGIN TO FOLLOW THE LEAD OF PEOPLE LIKE CONGRESSMAN TED YOHO. SO I AM PROUD TO STAND WITH CONGRESSMAN TED YOHO. I AM PROUD TO ENDORSE HIM AND PROUD TO SUPPORT HIM. WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP, WHEN FLORIDA IS LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP, TED YOHO IS YOUR MAN AND I AM PROUD TO STAND WITH HIM.”
And Dr. Ron Paul also is supporting Congressman Yoho:
“Sadly, establishment Republicans are determined to spend whatever it takes to defeat liberty candidates in 2014…Great liberty candidates, like…Ted Yoho, were elected when so many establishment Republicans lost.”
Freedomworks has also endorsed Rep. Yoho. We need to help a strong advocate and leader like Congressman Yoho get re-elected to congress.
