Gavin Rollins, a Clay County Commissioner and Republican candidate running for Florida’s 3rd congressional district, has been endorsed by Tyler Yoho.
Yoho, a Clay County attorney, is the son of outgoing U.S. Representative Ted Yoho, who Rollins is seeking to replace. Yoho is retiring at the end of his current term, following through on a campaign pledge to limit his service to four terms.
“Gavin will be an exceptional congressman. He’s a hardworking conservation fighter,” Yoho said. “As a lifelong resident of the district, Gavin truly cares about the people, land and water. Most importantly Gavin is honest and genuine.”
Gavin Rollins, Clay County Commissioner and Republican candidate for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, introduced a policy that would require Clay County to prioritize American products over foreign imports.
With the U.S. looking at levying further sanctions on China for their role in the COVID-19 pandemic, Rollins, too, is attempting to hold the authoritarian regime accountable and strengthen the appeal of items made in America.
“Clay County’s annual budget is over $300 million,” said Rollins “Cumulatively, local governments in the U.S. spend $2 trillion a year. It defies logic that we would be spending these hard-earned taxpayer dollars overseas, especially on products made in communist China, when we can invest right here at home.”
