Clay County Republican Judson Sapp has added another endorsement to his pile.

Former U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns announced Tuesday that he was backing Sapp in the Republican primary for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, the seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho.

“It is my pleasure to endorse my friend Judson Sapp for Congress. Having served in the U.S. Congress representing this very same district, I know what it takes to be effective — and Judson Sapp has demonstrated that quality in creating jobs with his business and serving and living in his community,” Stearns said.

“We need to send a strong conservative to Washington to fight for our values. Judson Sapp is a successful community leader who has stood with our President and will stand up for us in Congress.”
