When she was sworn in to her first term in the U.S. House of Representatives on Jan. 3, 2021, Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) became the youngest Republican woman in Congress. She ran for reelection in 2022 with Trump’s endorsement and easily won, taking 62% of the vote in Florida’s 3rd Congressional District.
A graduate of the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, Cammack managed a successful political campaign for underdog congressional candidate Ted Yoho in Florida’s 3rd District when she was only 24 and later served as his deputy chief of staff before running for Congress herself.
Trump first endorsed Cammack in a September 2020 tweet that read: “she strongly supports our Brave First Responders & Law Enforcement, Life and the Second Amendment.” During that campaign, she called socialism the “greatest threat” facing America.
Cammack has shown her ongoing loyalty to Trump by helping to spread the Big Lie and voting against certifying the Electoral College results, impeaching the president for inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, and establishing a House committee to investigate the insurrection, among other measures.
January 6, 2021
- Just hours after Trump supporters violently attacked the Capitol, Cammack joined 146 other congressional Republicans in refusing to certify Biden’s win of the 2020 presidential election.
- That evening Cammack said on the House floor that she was further “resolved… that we as representatives of the people must take a stand for every American’s right to a free and fair election.”
- Cammack voted against impeaching Trump for his role in instigating the attack on Congress and the Capitol, and for fanning the flames once the riot broke out. In a prepared statement, she wrote: “not only does this move by the liberal Left further divide our nation, it sets a dangerous precedent that subjects the impeachment process to political motivations.”
- Cammack also voted against establishing a special House committee to investigate what led to the violent interruption of the congressional proceedings underway that day, contending that the investigation was illegitimate because it has a “political outcome established before the committee began.”
The Big Lie
- In her press release announcing her opposition to certifying the Electoral College results from Pennsylvania and Arizona, Cammack said the “November election revealed irregularities that still have yet to be resolved.”
- On Dec. 15, 2020, Cammack signed a letter with 25 other House members-elect calling on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to investigate irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.
- In opposing the Democratic-sponsored voting rights bill H.R. 1 (also known as the For the People Act), she falsely claimed that it “allows 16 year olds to vote” and “strips voter ID requirements.”
