Florida Veterinarian Appears to Take Down 12-Term GOP House Rep. Stearns

By Chris Good | ABC News Blogs – 3 hours ago

Twelve-term Rep. Cliff Stearns trails his Republican primary opponent in Florida with 100 percent of precincts reporting.

Tea partyer Ted Yoho, a veterinarian and political newcomer, leads Stearns by 829 votes in a shocking upset, the Associated Press reported. Redistricting forced Stearns into a geographically larger, newly drawn district stretching north and west of his old territory, into Florida's panhandle.

The winner of tea-party straw polls in Gainesville, Gilchrist and Lake City, Yoho ran a TV ad comparing career politicians to pigs in slop, promising new leadership and a repeal of "Obamacare." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkVG1StqOzQ&feature=plcp He recorded a YouTube video with a George W. Bush impersonator in which they bemoaned the Obama administration.

TED’S ENDORSEMENTS

EXCERPT: Sheriff Richard Mack – Congressional Candidate and Author
I formally endorse Ted Yoho for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012. Ted is exactly the type of person that our Nation needs in Washington as he represents integrity, character and values. His belief in the founding principles and the Constitution will be necessary in getting our Country back on track. As a former law enforcement officer, I know the challenges associated with security and safety in our Country and in our communities. He is the strongest voice to represent the people of the 3rd Congressional District and it is my honor to support him in this endeavor.

Richard Feagle – Owner of Archer Automotive

I am supporting Ted Yoho because I believe that we need common folks in Washington – Not Washington insiders. People are tired of the same old people being up there constantly and not getting anything done. I came to know Ted through working on his vehicles, and as I got to know him I realized that we share the same values. The more you get to know Ted, you can’t help but like the guy. He is a normal American guy who is looking to make a difference and I am glad he is stepping up to do so.

Rising Star Ted Yoho, 'Republican with Libertarian Slant'

By: ERIC GIUNTA | Posted: August 18, 2012 3:55 AM

North Central Florida’s new Republican congressional nominee is a self-styled “conservative Christian Republican with a libertarian slant” who plans to take a hatchet to thousands of pages of federal regulations, beginning with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

He’s avowedly antagonistic to the foreign policy orientation of the last several presidential administrations, including his own party’s “neoconservative wing,” wants to return America’s troops home from abroad, and is a staunch civil libertarian who calls for the repeal of the Patriot Act and the latest incarnation of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

EXCERPT: Yoho’s certainly done his homework. “[I’ve] read the Constitution over and over again. I’ve taken study courses on it through Hillsdale [College]. I’ve read the Federalist Papers. I’ve read [Michael Holler’s] ‘The Constitution Made Easy’. I’ve studied this document,” he insists.

My take - he loves George W. and his foreign policy.

I understand where you are

I understand where you are coming from, but my experience with Ted Yoho tells me he could be swayed closer to Ron Paul. Send him an email, help educate him. http://www.tedyoho.com/ It's still good news getting rid of Stearns ...and now today I see Sarah Palin endorsed Ted Yoho. Keeps him in the limelight anyway, while we help to educate him.

It just goes to show that incumbents can be removed when the people rise up and take action!!! Dr. Ted Yoho's first interview after defeating 24 year incumbent Cliff Stearns. And yes, he did just do a "Tebow." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=358z9oW0-1c&feature=player_em...

The 3rd District of Florida is historically a republican held district.

BREAKING: Sarah Palin Endorses Rising GOP Star Ted Yoho for Congress
BY: ERIC GIUNTA | Posted: August 21, 2012

EXCERPT: In an exclusive interview with Sunshine State News Thursday, Yoho detailed his strict constitutional philosophy, fielded questions which had been submitted by readers, and candidly set forth why he set out to run against conservative stalwart Stearns.
