“Judson is a husband, father, and successful businessman who knows what it takes to lead and get the job done. I endorse Judson Sapp for Congress because he will fight for Florida and stand up for conservative values,” Buchanan said in a news release.

The nod is the latest in a string for Sapp, who is running for the North Central Florida district currently held by U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho.

Other recent backers include Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith, former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and Putnam County Sheriff Gator DeLoach.

“I sincerely appreciate the endorsement from Congressman Buchanan,” Sapp said. “Vern has succeeded in business and in leadership roles in Congress. I’m honored to have his support.”
