Ted Yoho Endorses Jeff Moran to Challenge Gwen Graham
U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., who used to represent parts of the district, has thrown his support to businessman Jeff Moran in the Republican primary to take on U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, D-Fla., in November.
Moran kicked off his campaign on Saturday with Yoho‘s support.
“It is amazing to see so many friends and family members here today as we begin this journey,” Moran said. “I can’t thank you enough for being here. Back in 2012, I was inspired by my friend Ted Yoho who took on the establishment in Washington and stood up for the everyday people in our community. He defeated the Washington machine by creating a grassroots movement that carried him all the way to D.C. He has done some incredible things against all odds in Washington but he needs backup.
“We need real conservatives who are not a part of the political class,” Moran added. “As a business owner and former law enforcement officer, I bring a different perspective that I
believe is needed in Washington. It’s called common sense.”
“Jeff Moran knows what it is like to run a business and deal with government getting in your way,” Yoho said in a release sent out by the Moran team on Wednesday. “As a former police
officer, he knows what it’s like to run into situations that most people are running out of. He is the guy that we need in Washington that will not only be the best representative for North Florida but will be a voice for common sense and conservatives across the country.”
Moran faces Panama City surgeon Neal Dunn and Tallahassee attorney Mary Thomas in the primary.
