Skip to comments.Veterinarian Ted Yoho Headed to Congress [Sarah Endorsed Conservative Defeated 12 Term Demon Rat]
Posted on 11/18/2012 2:39:34 PM PST by SoFloFreeper
Florida veterinarian Ted Yoho was elected to Congress on Tuesday with a convincing victory over a Democratic challenger and less than three months after he narrowly defeated 12-term incumbent Cliff Stearns in the Republican primary.
Dr. Yoho, 57, turned his attention to politics while working as a large animal veterinarian in Gainesville, Fla. His years in practice and his interaction with farmers, ranchers and business owners made him concerned for "the state of our nation" and led him to realize it was time to "stand up for America," according to his campaign website.

Not all is lost, folks.
Yes, the Allen West thing is frustrating. Yes, I believe there was voter fraud in Philadelphia. Probably Detroit too.
Let's not give up.
Working for the voters and the health of the Union - a winning position.
Yet, the GOP elites pooh-pooh anything the “unsophisticated” Sarah Palin does. Sarah IS sophisticated, in a down to earth sort of way; and certainly more of an example of sophistication and moral authority than the rabble rouser, Sandra Fluke (who coveted crowds the size of those Sarah draws).
Go Ted Yoho!
Stearns was a Republican, and pretty conservative too.
Cliff Stearns is the clear conservative choice in Floridas Third District. His ACU lifetime congressional rating of 95 over 23 years of service reflects an outstanding and consistent commitment to conservative principles over a wide range of issues and is one of the highest in the Congress over that period of time.
Yoho’s a great addition though. Check out his wonderful campaign ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkVG1StqOzQ
Some good news!
Bonehead and Cantor won’t like this.
You'd bet your ass they wouldn't. That is why the GOP is dying a very painful death right now. Hospice has been called in, we just don't know how long they have.
Then us and Sarah will build a New Conservative Party from the void the GOP has left.
Romney as someone she endorsed. She said she would vote for him.
Correct! Sarah knew that he she want all in, say like back in May, with the OmG!!@!! VoTE 4 romNEY!!!! cheerleader brigade, she knew that A. If he won, her credibility to stand up to his RINO way of governing would be shot.
B. If he lost than she had gone all in for a losing, GOP-E endorsed candidate.
So the only winning move, was not to play the Dem's or GOP's stupid game. Which is what Sarah did. She knows what she is doing.
Sounds like good news.
I waited to let a few others respond to this thread with sensible replies, before asking a question I just can’t resist.
Does Dr. Yoho dress up as Santa Claus at Christmas?
Stearns was a Democrat. 12 term.
correction, sorry, Stearns was a Republican. :(
My apologies to all. I mis-read the story....
Happy to hear this. i was starting to wonder if we had picked up any seats. All I keep reading is this Republican has been ousted by his/her Democrat challenger.
Stearns was my congress critter and was good. The point being, Stearns had been there too long. He was in the teaparty congress, standing up tall with Michelle Bachmann and the rest from the start.
Since when is Stearns a democrat?
Stearns was a good republican/tea party congress critter, I should know,my district.
If Sterns was a great conservative why was he defeated?
Why are we supposed to be happy that he's gone?
Hit ‘abuse’ on the articles and tell the moderator to change the headline.
New blood can be appealing.
Look at Yoho’s ad I linked to above.
What infuriates me is that the DEMs had no qualms about putting their Sandra Fluke out there - even had her speak at the convention, but our side - the GOPE wouldn’t allow Sarah any where near the convention or on the campaign trail.
Yes, people - the GOP is spineless.
Stearns may be a Democrat but he served as a Republican. Yoho beat him in the GOP primary.
Oh my gosh - what a wonderful ad. Too bad someone on the Romney team couldn’t come up with something this clever. Their ads were, how shall we say it - BORING! They didn’t inspire anyone - not even me.
But, this pig ad is great!
“If Sterns was a great conservative why was he defeated?”
Because the geniuses in the FL legislature (the very ones who redistricted Col. West) moved Stearns’s district so that it didn’t include his home town and base of support. Good to have a GOP majority in the legislature, isn’t it? Dems in the majority would NEVER do that to their own. Stupid Republicans.
Hit abuse on the articles and tell the moderator to change the headline.
It’s a shame that posters don’t even read the damn articles they post. Palin didn’t endorse Yoho until a week after he defeated Stearns in the primary. Who the hell was she going to endorse if it wasn’t the GOP Primary winner?
> “Dr. Yoho, 57, turned his attention to politics while working as a large animal veterinarian in Gainesville, Fla” <<
Just how LARGE is Dr.Yoho? :o)
ACU means nothing.
They rated Bub Dulle 100.
I have known Ted Yoho for years. He is gonna be great in Washington. Very well respected her in the middle of libville and surrounding counties.
I guess Joe the Plumber lost.
ACU means nothing.
ACU ratings, while not perfect, do mean something.
Which is I asked, why are we supposed to be happy that he's gone?
That guy's campaign CONsultant is NOT a CONman!!!
You are so right! Sarah Palin has an acute sense of her political principals. Go Sarah!
All the RINOs have fabulous ACU ratings.
ACU is a protection racket for RINOS.
Career-enhancing tip to Republicans intending to seek election to the Congress: Earn Sarah’s endorsement.
Palin gave us Ted Cruz and Deb Fischer this cycle.
Palin’s candidate (Sarah Steelman, I wonder how different 2012 would have been with her?) lost to Ted Akins in the Missouri primary though, Palin had about 14 campaigns she endorsed and at least 8 victories.
Thanks for the clarification. Never made sense to me that a R dominated legislature would do that. Amazing how it always works in one direction only.
Steelman lost, at least in part, because she had sold her soul to the trial layers.
It’s too bad the tea party candidate lost, Akin didn’t work out so well.
