Ted is the kind of guy we should be sending to Washington. We can’t keep electing politicians who are more concerned with their political careers than they are with the country. We’ve seen enough candidates looking for their next elected office and Ted is a refreshing change from that. He is a no nonsense kind of guy who will do what’s right even if it’s not popular. He knows the people, has roots throughout the community and will fight for us.
LD Hinkle on January 4, 2013 at 4:23 am
We need more leaders like Dr Yoho. He represents term limits. This is long over due. Our founding forefathers were not career politicians. 8 yrs. is enough for any office. God Bless Dr Yoho in his endeavors and I hope he can help run the House Speaker out of Washington DC Speaker Boehner is incompetent and needs to go back to civilian day job.
JOSEPH GEE, INDEPENDENT RETAIL PHARMACIST/OWNER on November 5, 2012 at 7:30 am
As a small independent pharmacy owner, I feel that Ted is the person we need in Washington to help control healthcare spending and show where the money is going. Big insurance companies dictate which doctor we can see, what treatments we receive, and how much it cost. I think Ted will help hold them accountable and he has my full support.
Raisa Alstodt on October 2, 2012 at 9:02 pm
I endorse Ted Yoho because he’s a wonderful man and what we need in congress. He can put party lines aside do to what’s right for our country and that’s what’s needed. You may not agree with all he has to say but he has strong morals and sticks to his ideas. Ted has a backbone which many Congressman don’t have in DC. This man gained my confidence and respect within a month of knowing him because he has character and is a stand-up man. Ladies ad gentlemen, what you see is what you get with Ted. He’s not just some vet, he’s a man that has a passion and love for this country. A man that wants our country to grow strong again.
Melissa Huene, RN on August 15, 2012 at 9:05 pm
I am a proud supporter of Ted Yoho. Congratulations!
Drew and Ada Reddish on August 14, 2012 at 7:15 pm
Go Ted!!! We are behind you 100% and have been working for you here in Starke.
We are impressed with what we know about you and feel that you will be a hardworking
Ms. Pat Seguin on July 31, 2012 at 4:02 pm
I have known Ted Yoho ever since I first came to Florida over 20 years ago. We have shared many a ham sandwich while treating and/or breeding milk cows. I have never known a more compassionate and people caring person than Ted. He has always been concerned citizen of both national and local issues. There is NO ONE I would rather have represent me in congress. MY vote for ?Ted? will be like I am there in congress voting! for the issues that ?I believe in!!!
Judy Sanders, Retired on July 28, 2012 at 8:55 pm
I am endorsing Ted Yoho because I am sick and tired of the status quo. It seems that the politicians tell us what they think we want to hear and then when they get to Washington they become deaf, dumb and blind as to what is important to their constituents. They enjoy their trips, benefits and nice retirement packages, but don’t seem to care about the people who are paying for those things.
I like Ted Yoho because he is a Conservative Christian and seems to have a passion for our country and doing what he can to get us back on track as a nation. He cares about the Constitution and the values on which this great country was founded. I am extremely concerned about the direction that this country is taking and even though Ted has not held an elected office, I DO NOT CARE! I am thinking that is a plus. We have many lifetime, career politicians up there and just how is that working for us? I am ready to take a step in a new direction. Good luck Ted!
Adam Prins on June 14, 2012 at 1:19 am
I am an elected City Councilman in the City of Live Oak. We lost a great Congressional representative in Steve Southerland. After meeting all of the candidates for our district, I can honestly say that if I can’t have Steve, then I want TED. I am a Yoho man all the way. He is down to earth, sincere, humble, and intelligent. I support his candidacy 100% and look forward to his being sworn in to represent me.
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, the more you can’t help but really 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.
Dustin Rhodes – Entertainer/Pro Wrestler/Actor
I met Ted and had a regular conversation with him. I believe his way of life is a get down and work to make it better policy. Family man, Christian and you can see truth in his eyes. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty!
Adam Prins – Live Oak City Councilman
I am an elected City Councilman in the City of Live Oak. We lost a great Congressional Representative in Steve Southerland. After meeting all of the candidates for our new district, I can honestly say that if I can’t have Steve, then I want TED! I am a Yoho man all the way. He is down to earth, sincere, humble and intelligent. I support his candidacy 100% and look forward to his being sworn in to represent me.
Jack Langdon – Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Court Mediator
I have known Ted Yoho and his wonderful family for more than 35 years. I am so happy that finally someone with family values, Christian beliefs and great conservative judgment is seeking to be elected to congress….I have HAD ENOUGH of the “old guard”…. let’s send Ted to Washington to help straighten out this mess our country is in!
Dr. Jack Sameck – Veterinarian
I support Ted for several reasons. First, as a fellow veterinarian he understands how to diagnose a problem and then go about treating it most effectively while considering multiple variables. Secondly, he has one of the best reputations in North Central Florida in the veterinarian community, which speaks to his character and integrity. Ted is not the type to tell you about his character – He just shows you. He is a man of his word and when he says that he will do something, he does it. Ted is the strongest candidate to send to Washington as he represents this area better than anyone else on the playing field.
Sandy Pratt – Owner of Pratt and Associates
We have been friends with Ted and Carolyn Yoho for over 20 years. We first got to know Ted as our large animal veterinarian – then quickly became family friends. Our kids grew up together sharing many vacations. Ted is honest, trustworthy, and wants to make a real change in our country. Anytime I had an animal emergency he came by no matter what time of day or night. I remember one time he dropped everything and came over because one of our cats had gotten out and been hit by a car and the kids were all upset and crying. He was all dressed up to go to a meeting but didn’t hesitate to roll up his sleeves and try to save her. When that did not work – he helped us dig a hole to bury her because I was there by myself with four crying kids. I want someone who has compassion like that and is an honest, hard working, and politically savvy person representing me in Congress for District 3!
Terry Land – Owner of Land Creations
I have personally met Ted on several different occasions; each time we meet and talk I am impressed with his knowledge of our Government and how it could be operating on a higher more efficient level than it is now. Ted, as a workingman, and owning his own successful business, knows how to manage and prosper in difficult times, such as we are in now. That is the reason we need someone like Ted in OUR government.
Col Rik Combs (USAF, Ret.)
Ted Yoho is the very best America has to offer–bar none. He’s dedicated, honest, hard working, and epitomizes the very characteristics we need leading this country. He has my total support and endorsement for any political office he so chooses to grace with his presence. We need more like Dr. Yoho to take a stand for America and traditional values, not the career politicians we are saddled with on local, state and federal levels. Ted Yoho 2012!
Jeannette Bimonte – Vet Student
Endorsing Dr. Ted Yoho isn’t even something that needs to be pondered. This is a man who can and will get done what needs to be done. Besides being the epitome of a passionate and knowledgeable veterinarian, he is the model of an outstanding human being. His compassion is 24/7, his honesty never waivers and he knows how to communicate at a level at which everyone can understand. A man of his word these days is a rarity, but not with Dr. Yoho. I have been out of the area for almost two years now and he still takes my calls, answers my questions and calms the fears I may have. Congress doesn’t need someone like Dr. Ted Yoho; they need Dr. Ted Yoho himself. As much of an asset this man is to the veterinary community, the United States needs him more. I endorse Dr. Ted Yoho.
Jerry Roach – Tax Accountant, Hartman, Blitch & Gartside CPAs
I have known Ted for many years. I have always found him to upstanding, saying what he means and doing what he says. I know that he would make an outstanding Representative and would both support and protect our conservative views.
Samantha Lewis – Freshman, University of Florida
I am voting for Ted Yoho because when I graduate, I want to know that I will have opportunities available to me. Ted’s story – how he was raised and the challenges that he faced really resonated with me because it reminded me of my dad. My dad grew up poor and worked very hard to achieve his goals and to provide for our family and I saw a lot of that in Ted. He truly is a proponent of the American Dream. He will fight for my chance to claim my American Dream. That is why we need to send Ted to Washington.
Laura P – Meat Cutter at Publix
I am supporting Ted Yoho because for the first time in my life, I have gotten involved and paid attention to politics, mostly because of Ted. He has energy, he is exciting, and he wants to get back to the Constitution – Exactly what we need in this Country. This is the year we have to do something. I have woken up to the fact that I can’t just want things to change. I have to physically do something. Supporting Ted is the best way I know how to do that because he is the best man for the job.
Barry Smith – Project Manager at Mac Johnson Roofing Inc
Ted holds the values that make America strong. His goals are to fix what is wrong with Washington and the career politicians that have driven our country the wrong way for way too long.
Laura Jackson – Administrator Kanapaha Veterinary Services
I have worked with and known Dr. Yoho for many years. He is a man of honesty and integrity, which is someone with these qualities that we need in Washington. He is so passionate about everything that he does and always completes the tasks at hand. He has been there for my family, and me and of course my animal’s more times then I can count. With these kind of qualities I think the people of this district will have a man in Washington who will have our backs and do what is best for all. He is a man who believes in his country and state. God Bless
Jill Peterson – Self Employed, Retired UF Faculty
I have known Ted for many years as a large animal vet, and although I only saw him occasionally, I grew to genuinely like and respect him. When I heard of his candidacy, I logged on to his website to research his opinions. My first thought upon seeing his website and the picture with wife and kids was OMG! He has a beautiful family! My subsequent (and more substantive) thoughts were that I respected and agreed with his stand. Like Ted, I have total faith in the American system, but cannot help but be distressed with the path we are following at this time. I’ll proudly vote for Ted!
David Wilson – City President, BBVA Compass Bank
I am endorsing Ted because he is not a Washington insider and stands for less government and personal responsibility. Ted is a business owner and understands the hard work required to operate a successful business.
Robert Mooney, Jr – Manager at The Hilltop in Orange Park, FL
I have been managing for a family owned small business for 10 years and love the fact that he does not come from the corporate environment and can see things from our level. I have to admit that my fiancé and I have a wonderful rescue dog named “RADAR” that we adore and love the fact that Mr. Yoho is such a caring person towards animals. “RADAR” says you got his vote too!! Ted is also willing to put in the groundwork in what it takes to be successful. He made an appearance at our restaurant recently and was a very gracious individual. Overall just a down to earth human being! Props Ted on that! Another is the fact that instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on TV ads, etc. to sling mud I actually had some young folks knock on the front door of my home in the middle of a rainstorm to endorse him. I was totally impressed by this! No other candidate has EVER done that! If Ted can manage and win a campaign with hard work and less money, then just imagine what he can do for us when he actually gets into office! Anything I can do to help out please let me know!! DO THE RIGHT THING AND VOTE FOR TED YOHO!
Betsy Whitaker – Real Estate Asset Management Inc
We need men if integrity who will stand up and do what is right for this country and not bend to the pressure of party or lobbyists. Ted has that integrity
Peter Galanos – Retired Pharmacist & Military Pilot
Dr. Yoho is an honest and hard working individual who will bring new ideas and solutions to some very important issues that affect this country. Having been both an employee and business owner he has first hand knowledge of the challenges that both groups face in this current economic climate. You can count on Dr. Yoho to represent the people and not be a pawn of any individual or special interest group.
Bill Boe – Self Employed – Public Relations
Ted is committed to government as guided by the Constitution and government with the input and consent of the governed; He is honest and committed. I trust him and believe in him.
Alexander Snitker – Host of the Liberty Underground Show
Ted Yoho embodies what we should all be looking for in a representative. Ted is not a career politician. He is looking to go to Washington and restore the Constitutional principles that made this country great. When campaigning Ted has shown the ability to answer questions directly unlike many candidates. I support Ted in his race for Congress.
Nick Eagle – Student at University of Florida
Congress has lost touch with the American people and they don’t know who they are fighting for anymore – the only thing they fight for is their office. Ted is a breath of fresh air and is someone who understands how Congress’ actions and inactions affect everyday Americans. He is strict follower of the Constitution and understands that it is more than just guidelines or something that is used every so often. Ted will fight for the American Dream and that is why I’m supporting him.
R.J. Yoho – Author
Although I share the same last name as Ted, it isn’t clear if we are truly related. What IS clear to me is that we not only share a name; we also share the same values.
Like Ted, I am also concerned about the direction our country is taking. In my latest book, “America’s History is His Story,” I wrote about many of the economic and social ills that our nation is facing. They are indeed serious.
If we are to survive as a nation, then these problems call for bold and immediate solutions. That is why I am happy to see more men like Ted Yoho running for high elective office.
Our country is currently mired in an ever-growing see of red ink, because America has a surplus of politicians and a deficit of statesmen.
After learning more about his views, I think the United States Congress needs more men like Ted Yoho to walk its halls and to honorably represent its citizens.
Perhaps it’s time to pass on the politicians and to elect Ted Yoho, a statesman for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District
Tom Cox – Veterinarian
Ted was a classmate and a friend for 29 years. He is a nice moral American. He is a person you can trust to do a good job. He will look out for the individual and small business interest. He is a practical modest individual.
Marshall Richards – Retired
Ted is a Tea Party Candidate. That means that Ted is for less government, taxes and fiscal responsibility; contrary to what the mass media is saying about the Tea Party
Steve Nadler – Retired
As a customer of his for numerous years, I learned to trust his opinion. We have had numerous discussions while working on our animals. I feel he would fight for the people instead of live off the people if elected.
Sanchez Farms, LLC – Ag Business Owner
We are happy to endorse a man like Ted for Congress. The values, common sense and work ethic that he has are exactly what we need in Washington.
Thomas A. Barattiero – Nursing at Malcolm Randall VA Hospital
In a word, his commitment to Tea Party principles! He believes in the foundational principles of our Republic. He favors repeal of Obama care and auditing the Federal Reserve that as federal as Federal Express. His is a Christian, a fair man in which his good spirit radiates to all who associate with him. It is a pleasure to know and work with him. I will always recommend without reservation any activities he deems necessary to support.
Lois and Bart Crist – Retired
We endorse Ted Yoho as we respect his political philosophy and agree that ‘America is teetering on collapse’. Ted’s vet experience will serve him well when he goes to Washington, he knows what BS looks like and he has learned to avoid it or high step over it. Ted will be doing a lot of high stepping’ in DC!!!!!!
Scotty Taylor – Firefighter/Paramedic
I endorse Ted because he wants the best for the people he will represent. When I say the “people” I don’t just mean the very loud far right wing Tax Payer Groups. We Moderate Republicans pay taxes as well as support the right to bear arms, oppose government sponsored abortions, welfare give away programs etc. Ted recognizes and values local government worker’s service to the public understanding that his District has many who are both active and retired local government employees. Clay County alone has thousands of both active and retired military voters there. Knowing this I feel that many school employees, firefighters, correctional and law enforcement officers represented by local unions will support his campaign. Ted also understands that our men and women in uniform are government employees with a pension plan as well benefits paid for by the taxpayer. I do really feel that there is more to Ted than just a “cut taxes at all costs” Conservative.
The best thing about Ted is that he knows like you and I the need for strong private job sector here in America again. I for one am willing to help Ted. I hope you will to.
David White – Landscape Contractor
I’m not a real political person, but I’m also not dumb. If you cant see that TED YOHO needs to be in Washington for all of us hard working Americans than there is something wrong with you. I am a hardworking self employed 37 year old that is also tired with the way this country is being run. Ted may not remember me but the first time I ever meet him I walked into his veterinarian office before he was open for business and seen a man doing remodeling work. After talking to that man for 10 minutes or so he told me that he was Ted Yoho the vet that owned the building. You don’t see many veterinarians’ doing stuff like that or take the time to talk to someone for 10 or 15 minutes that they don’t even know. I endorse Ted Yoho because he is real and I have seen it on more than one occasion.
Herman Jr. and Virginia Sanchez – Self-Employed
We believe in Ted’s philosophy about how our country should be run.
Brad Smith – Real Estate
Glad to have a local businessman from small town roots represent us in Washington. Career politicians have destroyed this country by forgetting where they came from. Having patriots like Ted stand up for what is right will allow us to begin to re-install the true purpose of government. Good Luck team Yoho!
Tina Vernon – Law Enforcement Leon County Sheriff
By far, a great American! I have known him for years thru his business. Ted is very honest and willing to help anyone. I believe he can make great changes for our country.
Mark Ellis Solomon, Esq. – Attorney
I want what the Founders intended – a citizen congress. Not a professional politician. Dr. Yoho is a business owner who embodies, and will represent (and reflect) the hard working citizens that live alongside him. He will (along with other like-minded Representatives) attempt to right the course for this nation.
James O. Shimeall – Retired
Long-term politicians loose all perspective on why they are there. We are long overdue for a conservative stand, especially in Congress.
Nancy Stacy – Marion County School Board District 1
I am a member of the Marion County Republican Ex Committee and an active Tea Party supporter. I was just elected to the Marion County School Board following a 20 yearlong journey as a conservative education activist. I followed Ted along with many of our Marion County Republican Club members/leadership and I know Ted is a true believer in our Constitution and will stop the stomping of it.
Kate Boulos – Cedar Ridge Kennels Inc. / Professional Sporting Dog Trainer
Ted Yoho is a man of integrity and honesty. I have known Ted for over 30 years in his capacity as an excellent large animal veterinarian. Ted understands the demands and issues, which effect small business owners. Ted is a family man with strong Christian values. I feel Ted will represent the people of this district and make our voice heard in Washington. I, like Ted, have had enough of career politicians.
Martha Hines – Retired
If we are ever going to take our country back, we have to have several Ted Yoho’s holding office in Washington to get the job done- plain and simple. This is just the beginning. More has to follow. No matter how much Dr Yoho wants to change things, he has to have help. We cannot stop here. We have to push for more professionals like Dr. Yoho. I am sure they are going to know who Ted Yoho is shortly after he arrives in Washington. He is honest and he will do what he says he will do. He will be the most popular Congressman since John F. Kennedy. I welcome Dr. Yoho as our voice in Washington, and with our continued support changes will be made. I am pleased with Dr. Yoho’s victory over Cliff Sterns. Way to go Ted.
Robert Dryer – Miner
We needed a change and ted is the best one to it.
Eric – Columnist, A Conservative’s Voice
Ted Yoho is exactly the kind of representative we need in Congress to reverse the damage done by Barack Obama and his administration. Ted is a solid conservative with strong values. I wished I lived in his district so that I could vote him.
Carlos Martijena – Retired
Ted embodies the values of independence, responsibility, hard work, honesty and Christian faith, which I respect. We need America to regain these values. Out with the Marxists, immoral and lazy people who are entrenched in our government! Reduce government size to half of what it is today! Repeal all the legislation of the last 4 years! Return our country to its place high in the Hill!
Don and Michelle Cox – Nextran Corporation
I had the pleasure of going to a meeting where ted spoke about what he wanted to change. I think he has a vision of getting America back to what he and I feel America should be. Good luck Ted! We’re pulling for you.
Nathan T. Tuccio – Realtor
It is time that our Federal Government gets back to the size the Constitution set for it. Enumerated powers means that they can’t just do what they wish. Unfortunately both parties have put their personal agenda and power first. Ted Yoho is a breath of fresh air. Let’s hope he stays true!
Jay Rhoten – Department Head of Animal Health for Chiefland Farm Supply
Ted’s ethical and moral beliefs are rivaled only by his stature of character and dedication. He possesses the character traits that we so badly need to be represented in Washington if we plan to take our country back. He leads by example and inspires. Getting Ted elected is the best possible start to leading our country back out of the trenches.
Zac Bielling – Fiscal Officer, University of Florida
It’s time for a common sense approach to leading this country. When did being an elected public servant become a career? Thanks for pledging to leave the US House within eight years! This is a servant…going to help, then returning to the “trenches”. Ted Yoho, a social (Christian!) and fiscal conservative. Now that is a great combination!
Jason Hubbard – Farrier
As a colleague of Teds while he was working as a large animal vet, I was able to interact with him for years. His honesty, character, and work ethic are qualities that are desperately needed in our nations leadership today. He will definitely make you proud!
Lori Pope – Retired
Just telling you we voted for you!!! Hope you’re doing great and win!!!!! We would love to see you get the office but our horses will sorely miss you. Thank goodness they haven’t needed you! And I am able to give their vaccines! Had we been home more we would have at the very least put a sign up however everyone we talk to has said they were voting for you already. Good to see someone who has great work ethics, knows how to budget and run a successful business – has people skills and doesn’t think you go into to public service to screw the public but to actually perform as to what they believe is best for the public and not lobbyists. We worked hard all our lives, paid our way and certainly don’t believe in handouts for people who haven’t paid their dues. If government can’t learn to live within their means they need to stop asking me to pay for their stupidity. I’ve had enough!
John – Misty Morning Hounds
He means what he says. He cares about the future of our country. I know a lot of people say that, but Teds doing something about it and it seems to me a lot of people have tunnel vision cause there overwhelmed with there problems. This country is being overrun with, what ever you want to call it socialism, communism, lazy-ism, hate-ism, personally I have had enough (I lived in Gitmo, Cuba for 2 years and I know what I am talking about). I want my America back and I get the feeling Ted does two.
Larry & Sandy Johnson – Rock’n J Foxtrotter Ranch/Owner
His conservative no tax open views towards businesses to prosper.
Skip Hines – Owner of Hines Electrical and Communication, Inc. Central Fire and Communication, Inc and Abundantly Blessed Cattle Company
My family and I are endorsing Ted Yoho because we have known him for years as our large animal veterinarian and as a personal friend. Ted is a man of integrity in both his business and his professional life. He is a wonderful Christian family man, who loves God and his wife and his children and we are proud to support him. If we could fill Washington with people like Ted Yoho we could truly reduce government control on our businesses and personal lives, reduce spending and increase the integrity of the offices held by those we send to represent us. Also as a fellow business owner I know that Ted Yoho will work to reduce the current strangle hold that our government has on private small business growth. I also know that Ted will protect our constitutional right to bear arms, protect our borders and our God given rights to life. We would support no other than Dr. Ted Yoho as the next Florida Congressman!
Elise Copeland – Service Aide for Arc North Fl.
I MET TED IN LIVE OAK FL. I BELIEVE IN HIM & WHAT HE STANDS FOR. WE NEED A BIG CHANGE IN FL. I’M 78 YRS. OF AGE & IT’S FRIGHTENING WHERE WE ARE & WHERE WE’RE GOING IF WE DON’T MAKE CHANGES NOW NOT LATER. USE THIS ANYWAY IT CAN HELP THE U.S.A.
George Feussner – Physician, MDPA
I have known Ted for many years. I know he is a man of integrity, and I share most of his views as to how to save this country from its current downward spiral.
James Stockton – Self Employed Mechanic
I have listened to Ted speak to small groups and a few individuals. I have also personally asked Ted a couple of questions that were kind of off the wall yet relevant. Ted didn’t ponder long to try and answer in a way that he may have thought I wanted instead he shot back a straight answer. I appreciate Honesty.
Kevin – Reliability Engineer, Scitor
He is a fiscal and social conservative who will repeal Obama care, the Food Safety Modernization Act, and work to stop the redistribution of wealth through a corrupt tax system, and legislate within constitutional constraints, working to eliminate unconstitutional laws and agencies within the Federal Government. And, I hope will restore the DADT policy for our Armed Forces, the defense of marriage act, and work to make null and void every executive order and law passed by the illicit Obama regime.
Steve Miller – Construction Management
As a conservative with a solid family background and real world work experience running a profitable business Ted knows firsthand the effects of cumbersome regulations put in place many times with good intentions but with bad results. The lack of accountability throughout government and the hurdles placed in the way of businesses needs correction and his first hand experiences will help guide him to see that overreaching legislation is curtailed. His solid commitment to holding other elected representative to their most important responsibility, securing the longevity of this country by first developing a budget and looking for responsible ways to put this country back on a solid fiscal path is enough for me to endorse Ted.
Rolinridge Farm – Retired
Ted Yoho personifies the ideals and standards that we, as conservative Republicans support. It’s time to put those values back into our Congress and Ted Yoho is just the candidate for the job! Let’s work to get the career politicians away from the “trough” and put integrity, honesty and good old AMERICAN traditions and ethics back into government. A vote for Ted Yoho is a major step in that direction!
Kathy Smith – Retired
I was so presently surprised to see a nice and kindly faced man on a billboard in Jasper, Florida. Your face just speaks volumes. (I am a retired schoolteacher and can read faces pretty well.) If I had a lot of money I would give it to you – folks like you are the foundation that folks like me are searching for to run for office. Please don’t quit and please win. I will pray for you and support all I can. This retirement is not so great, don’t get me wrong I am always busy but busy does not pay my taxes. I have no health care and really need to go back to work. I never heard of you but came home and Goggled “Ted Yoho.” What a surprise to see not only are you a conservative but you are a CHRISTIAN! Thank God for men like you! I see you are a family man—good for you. God bless you and if I can help in some small way—please let me know. A fellow believer and conservative.
Albert & Lucille Rese – Retired
We met Ted at a Gilchrist County Tea Party meeting and found him refreshing. Unlike so many politicians, Ted presented a very clear understanding of our needs as residents and as citizens of this great country. His Conservative views and values are what are needed to bring government back to what was intended by the Founders of our government.
Laurie Jones, DVM
I have known Ted Yoho for over 25 years. He is one of the finest people I have had the pleasure to work with and get to know. He is the genuine article. A true man of his word. I am proud to be able to help him with his campaign. We desperately need men like him to stand up for us and try to save this country, in fact we need a couple hundred men like Ted to go to Washington D.C. Please do not sit back and do nothing, only to be upset in the future when our Constitution is a thing of the past and we have lost control of our rights. Ted is willing and able to help us get our country back. Please support him and vote for him. Laurie Jones DVM
Justine & David Parks – Retired
We have known Ted for over 12 years. He is an Honest, Intelligent, Dedicated and Driven man. In our experience with Ted we know he will do whatever it takes to help the American People, and to get our country back on track… He is a Christian Man, he Loves God and this Country. He will not quit; he will keep striving to do what is right for America… We support him 100% and our Prayers are with him and his family today and thru this election… WE AND OUR COUNTRY NEED A MAN LIKE TED YOHO IN OFFICE…..GO TED….VOTE TED.
Susan Stocum – Retired
I have known him for years. I know he would do a good job.
William Rice – Author and Breeder
I endorse Ted because I know he can do a better job then what we have in office. I have known Mr. Yoho for ten years when he owned Trenton Animal Hospital. I had to have an emergency C-section done on one of my dogs and he came in on a Sunday to do the procedure when we couldn’t find any other vet to help us. His love of animals kept me coming back to his office and he shown me that he is a man of integrity. Good luck my friend
We need conservative leadership in Congress. Someone that will return us to our founding father’s principles. Small government, individual responsibility and an environment where people can be successful through hard work, versus the new norm of people that are successful are punished and are paying for people that do nothing but collect government checks.
Alan Rhoads – Service Writer
I have known Ted for over 20 years. Having done business with him, lived in the same neighborhood and made family trips with him, I know he is a person of great American values. A handshake still means his word, he understands the working class and that the small businesses of this country are the backbone of the economy and jobs. Hard work and pride are what Ted stands for – not Government handouts and control.
James Hoyne – Student
I feel a lot like Dr. Ted, which is why I support him. I am tired of career politicians acting like its the other party stalling job creation. Its time we get our fiscal house in order and allow the American people to see what programs are being considered for cuts instead of politicians holding “back-room” meetings. We need to propose a 6-year term limit on members of the House of Representatives.
Tom – Retired
We need a new face in Congress and not someone who is a career politician. Ted seems to be the right person at the right time.
Ed and Sue Kell – Semi-Retired
Ted is an honest businessman that will work for the people. No mud-slinging politics for him. He definitely has our vote.
Donnie Weaver-Green – Great Tasting Pig.com
He is an honorable man. He has been my vet for years. Ted knows the people and will work for US, not for the government.
Alex Luera – Business Owner, Mobile Home Park and Retired Construction Contractor
Knowing Ted and what he stands for and people he associates with speaks volumes toward his honesty and integrity. Add to that the experience while the other two whom I used to consider, as gentlemen have been in office it is way pass time to make a change and TED is the man for the job. Obama tactics is getting to be a very sickening habit. Enough is enough.
Mildred Blalock – Retired
I believe in him. I had him out to work on my horses many years ago and liked him very much. He is the sort of person I would like fighting for my rights. I too am tired of the lies and the mud slinging and I won’t endorse a candidate that uses that approach. Tell me what you are going to do for me instead of trying to dig up, or make up stuff about your opponent.
David Creighton – Airline Pilot
I wasn’t sure until I received today a negative last minute campaign ad from one of your opponents. I Have been watching future congressman Yoho’s campaign and have been impressed with his positions and so many of my neighbors that support him that are quality citizens and hard working people just trying to succeed in life. Thank you Mr. Yoho for running in this race. I’m so sick of politics as usual. I can’t wait to vote for you tomorrow. It’s your turn.
James Mester – Retired
I am in full support of Mr. Ted Yoho for congress because of his integrity, his values, and his love of the people. I also believe that Ted is ready and able to serve our people with a humble and caring heart, because of his love of Jesus Christ.
Eddie Pollard – Law Enforcement
I am supporting Ted because I have had enough! I am sick and tired of listening to all the career politicians lie to support their personal agendas. I have served my country and am extremely proud to be an American, but I am so ashamed of my government right now. I strongly feel that this current presidential administration and many in congress have disgraced the names and achievements of every single one of our founding fathers. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! The olive branch that I carry will only bend so much before it snaps and becomes a whipping stick.
Victoria Baer – National Agenda 21 Speaker
I am endorsing Ted Yoho because I after having a good discussion with Ted this past weekend I knew that he is the person that we must have in Congress to unseat Cliff Stearns. I am on the National Speaker’s Board for Agenda 21 with Tom DeWeese. I am on Sheriff Mack’s Constitutional Posse and I am also on the vetting committee for Alex Snitker for Liberty Takeover 2012.
I knew immediately after having an in depth conversation on several issues in this country including our debt, Agenda 21, the attack on our Constitution and Sharia Law that this MUST be the man that we send in TO REPLACE CLIFF STEARNS!!
If you are looking for a CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN to stand up and help put our government back on the track of SMALL government and who can’t be bought by big lobbyist groups…THIS IS OUR MAN! And I should have known he was a former US MARINE!! I should have recognized that immediately being from a Marine family myself!!!
I am in Ander Crenshaw’s district (and he’s going to be out of office soon too) but I am going to do my best to make sure others in Cliff Stearns’ district know that this is the MAN that we need to get behind and send to DC who is going to start the clean up!!! Please get behind Ted Yoho…get out the VOTE for YOHO…tell your friends…CLIFF STEARNS MUST GO!!
If you want to Vote for FREEDOM AND LIBERTY you MUST VOTE FOR TED YOHO!
Don Roberts – Manager Rack Room Shoes
I met Ted when he came knocking on my door to introduce himself as a candidate for Congress. He spent about an hour in my home, with my wife and I, discussing why he will make a good Congressman. Come to find out he is a neighbor and a friend of my cousin who is a farmer and cattleman in Suwannee County where I was born. Ted is genuine and espouses a lot of the same values and concerns that I have about the direction of our country. In my opinion we need a few more small businessmen with ethics and a lot less career politicians in Congress!
Thomas W. Nauman DVM – Veterinarian
I am endorsing Ted because he is a fellow conservative and I share many of his views.
Greg Beckman – Chemical Plant Operator
I Like his platform and the idea of sending a normal, hard working businessman to Washington and believe he will look out for normal working class folks. Cliff Stearns and the react of the career politicians have nit been able to fix the mess they helped create. Too many of them are too concerned with special interest and have forgotten about the people they are there to represent. Dr. YOHO has my vote.
David Dehner – Retired
I met Ted back in the middle 70′s and did some work on his home he was building in the Meadows Kanapaha and knew him from High School. My wife worked for Ted in his Vet business (Cherie Fernandez) and we both know the kind of person Ted is and look forward to him getting elected and bringing his values to our Congress that has gone crazy under Obama. I share his values for this wonderful Country of ours and hope that some day we can make this a strong Country once again by putting the right people into office. I would gladly do anything I can to help make Ted Yoho our next Congressman.
Frank Kowalczyk – Tile Contractor
I met Ted last year. I realized then that Ted was not going to be just a politician! Ted and I have a lot in common. Ted would represent the pride of small business owners in these depressed times; find a way to Reduce Entitlements, & Government Spending. Ted has real family values & a common sense attitude to bring back to Washington. I support Ted Yoho for North Central Florida District 3 U.S. Congress 2012
MSgt Bill Stengle (USAF, Ret.)
I’ve been watching all of the candidates more closely than anytime in my life. I see Ted as a fresh new face on the scene with a truly fiscal conservative approach. Steve and Cliff have had their time – we need fresh ideas and a more effective approach to the problems we are facing.
Riley Deen – Retired Elementary School Principal
Ted Yoho represents the values that I feel will enable him to serve us well in Congress!
Renee Carroll Langner – RN, GAA
His beliefs, can do attitude, and believe he will make a change for all the right reasons, that will only benefit the American people now and in the future. Go TEAM YOHO!
Jacquelyn & John Totura
After listening to all the candidates and studying their positions carefully, we decided on Ted Yoho. There are several reason: 1) He is not a career politician with the trappings that go with it. 2) Every animal vet we have ever known has special qualities unique to that profession that will keep him serving us, the people. 3) Vets are loyal to a fault and have a capacity for love and respect that extends to the less fortunate which the people have become when compared to our political leaders.
Beverly Jones – Retired Correctional Officer
It’s time for new blood in Congress, people that can relate to the workingman.
John Dill – Logistics Manager Mayo Fertilizer, Inc.
I had the opportunity to meet Ted at the Wellborn Blueberry Festival. After several minutes of conversation about normal everyday topics I realized that he wasn’t what I call a “professional politician”. He is in this for the single purpose of helping his country. He is grounded and realizes that we can’t continue on the same course and expect different results. I look forward to him getting to Washington and making real changes.
Craig Price, DVM
I knew Ted in College-University of Florida. My wife, Tamera Lowe, and I feel Ted obviously knows about our type of business, and would definitely represent the small businessperson.
He is the type of people we need in politics if we expect our economy and country to turn around
Susan Steingress – Commercial Fisherman
The commercial fishing industry in the Gulf of Mexico is being given away to ANYONE who has the money.
And the American public has no idea about what is going on. It’s just too unbelievable to even imagine!
Washington/NMFS has put the little fisherman out of business and turned Gulf of Mexico reef fish into a commodity. After we put more than $150,000 in the initial investment for boat and permit not to mention thousands and thousands more in boat maintenance. Permit renewals, equipment, safety equipment maintenance, the boat has become a liability….we now have to lease poundage from “those to whom it was given” at a price per pound of their choosing, to be able to earn a living. I could go on and on but we have to go stand in the bread line now…and then go out and beg for work. I am voting everyone OUT.
Sandy Werner – Castlekeep Farm
America needs honest, strong people in Congress who are not afraid to “rock the boat” or “buck the establishment”…that would be Ted. It’s our responsibility to send lots of men like Ted to Washington to represent we the People.
Kevin Hawthorne, DVM
Our forefathers intended for our country to be run by the citizens, not by career politicians. Dr. Yoho is the only candidate in this race who fits the bill. His stance on the major issues match mine and I suspect the majority of Americans. We can no longer be the silent majority and I think Ted will be our voice.
Michael Bain – Retired
I’d vote for Howdy Doody to get this bunch of liberal crybabies out of Washington before they completely RUIN this great country. I think this is what most of them are trying to do. Besides that, I think Dr. Yoho IS the best man!
Wendy Waas – Animal Rescue/Ziggy’s Haven
Ted Yoho has been our veterinarian and my friend since 2006 when we added horses to our list of rescue animals we took in. Not only is he compassionate and realistic on animal issues and animal rights, his common sense approach on life is right on. I believe in Ted Yoho and back him 100%. Let me know if I can do anything to help.
Terri Parrott – St. Charles Veterinary Hospital
I believe there is too much political involvement in our lives with no connection to the small business owners! Go Ted!
Bill Boe – History Teacher, Freelance News Photographer
Ted listens, understands history and economics, and has courage to make independent decisions; he is not part of the Belt Way establishment that believes in government by clichés rather than conscience.
Layne E. Schultetus – Retired
Been on the campaign trail for months now with Ted. My wife and I talked to all the candidates and decided to endorse Ted as we feel his is a great replacement for Congressman Southerland who we lost due to redistricting. Ted is a Christian, conservative values and established businessman with the desire to be a leader in congress, not a follower.
Ted will provide the new District #3 with a congressman we can believe in.
Gary Weed – Professional Engineer, Retired
His support for the real America of yesterday including the Second Amendment.
James Mester – Kairos Minister
Although my eyes cannot see into Ted’s heart my ears hear the words of truth from his mouth. I pray that he speaks from his love of God. And will not be faint of heart or conviction.
Marjorie Knott – ret.
He is a good solid man very concerned for our country. He will do what is right.
Bruce Knowles – Teacher, Putnam County School
I have met him several times and believe what he had/has to say. I believe he will follow through on his promises. I AM FED UP WITH THE CAREER POLITICIANS AND WHAT THEY GET OUT OF US…THE PEOPLE.
Russell J Shay – Retired Law Enforcement
#1. I WILL NOT vote for an incumbent! #2. I saw and listened to Ted at a Tea Party meeting in Ocala and he impressed me with his ideas and general demeanor.
Zana Burnette – Retired
We need fresh blood in Washington. I have attended several of Ted’s meetings and see something clean and decent in him. Term limits should be mandatory.
Ted is a businessman and not a career politician. He has been in the “real world” of having to run a business, pay his employees and support his family. He hasn’t been sitting in an air-conditioned office making a 6-figure income, (whether or not he shows up for work) and just giving lip service to those of us struggling to make ends meet. He’s not making promises he can’t/won’t keep. He’s right here on the front lines knowing, first hand, the issues we face. I’ve known him since 1991 and I respect the type of man he represents. I have trusted him with the lives of some of what I hold most dear to me, my animals, so I certainly trust his leadership for the constituents of this area.
Lura Martin – Retired Business Owner Farmer/Rancher
Ted stands for less government interference in our daily lives. He will reduce spending, he will appeal Obama care, he will work to reduce government intrusion into our everyday lives by reducing regulations to give us more freedom to live our lives and run our businesses. Personally, Ted has owned a business, he has met payrolls, and he has worked within the layers of government regulations so he understands what small businesses need. Ted is the only candidate who has never held public office; he will never be a career politician. He understands the frustration of all Floridians with government in Washington.
Deborah Baker – Housewife, Retired Restaurant Owner, First lady Morocco Shrine
My endorsement of Ted Yoho is very clear; here we have an honest hardworking American who loves his family way of life, his country and most importantly, God! Without God in all our lives we are no one, Ted has put his trust in God which gives him the guidance he has achieved in all his life’s experiences over and over again. I have known Ted Yoho since our glory days at Deerfield Beach high school in South Florida, and when I saw his name on a sign, a message was sent and I have been supporting him since. After not seeing Ted and Carolyn for 39 years, like a well kept treasure, I found them both to be the same wonderful caring people I knew way back when, only what I noticed most about Ted is he went from a captain of our football team and evolved into a community leader, a great business man who kept all his charming personality in tact. He became a loving father and once again surfaced as my friend and I would be honored to have him serve as our congressman. We need stand up guys like Ted Yoho who even as one person, one vote can make a great difference when it comes to our country and uphold our Constitution. I say Ted is the man for this position and God Bless America and all she stands for.
Dempsey R. Sapp Jr. – Owner, Florida Pest Control & Chemical Co.
I have known Ted for many years. I first met Ted testing my cows for Brucellosis. For several years the government required the testing of all cows annually. It was hard work and Ted was working just as hard as anyone if not more.
I believe in Ted and for what he stands for. Ted wants to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America while many in Congress choose to ignore this important document. Ted has successfully managed and owned a business. He knows how to live within his means. We need leaders willing to address important topics like the future of social security and Medicare/Medicaid. I don’t think Ted would have passed or voted for health care or stimulus bills without reading them first.
Ted is a man of high morals and integrity, exactly what we need more of in Washington representing our best interest. I think Ted believes what most of us believe and will fight for us in Washington. I think Ted knows what it will take to get this great Nation back on track and stimulate the economy.
