Jake Rush challenges Incumbent Yoho

By The Staff

Voters in Levy County will have two opportunities on Tuesday, March 25, to meet Jake Rush, a candidate kicking off his Republican primary challenge to unseat one-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho in Florida’s 3rd congressional district.

“Conservative voters in North Central Florida are tired of being disappointed and embarrassed by their Congressman,” said Jake Rush kicking off his campaign.

The Jake Rush for Congress campaign is on a two-day, old fashioned, barn-storming tour of the district. On Monday, he announced his candidacy at On Top of the World in Marion County, Veterans Park in Alachua County and Orange Park in Clay County.

On Tuesday, he will visit several communities including at BubbaQue's on North Young Boulevard in Chiefland at 3:30 p.m. and at the Levy County Courthouse in Bronson at 4:30 p.m. while also hitting Lake City, Jasper, Live Oak, Branford, Bell, Trenton and Newberry.
