Congratulations to Dr Yoho Republican House Candidate from Floridas 3rd District

By Dr. Mark Lutschaunig, director, AVMA Governmental Relations Division

Dr. Ted Yoho, a large animal veterinarian from Gainesville Florida, defeated long term incumbent Representative Cliff Stearns for the GOP nomination in Florida’s third district.  Frustrated with Washington D.C. politics, Dr. Yoho ran on a platform of limited government, fiscal responsibility, free enterprise and personal responsibility.  In the general election, Dr. Yoho is running against Democrat J.R.Gaillot in a district known for being a Republican ‘safe seat.’  For more information about Dr. Yoho, go to
