Congresswoman Kat Cammack
Kat Cammack, the Congresswoman-elect for FL-03, will be the youngest Republican woman serving in the 117th Congress.
Kat is a small business owner with grit, who grew up on a cattle ranch. She is a third generation sandblaster, an alumnus of the United States Naval War College, and was the longtime former Deputy Chief of Staff for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District prior to her election.
As the 3rd generation in the family business of monuments and commercial sandblasting, Kat learned early on both the value of hard work and the pressures that small family businesses face, ranging from labor challenges to regulations.
In 2011, her family received the devastating news that they lost their small cattle ranch due to a failed Obama-era program, and they were forced to evict. After being homeless for several months, Kat was motivated by her recent personal experience with the failures of big government. She decided to pull herself up by her bootstraps and became a part of the solution to ensure no other family had to endure what she did due to the failures of Washington.
Kat is married to her husband Matt, a Gainesville native, who is a Firefighter/Paramedic & SWAT Medic. Together, they co-founded a non-profit organization called “The Grit Foundation,” whose mission is to support local law enforcement, veterans, and first responders.
