BIO

Kat grew up on a small ranch outside of Denver, CO. Raised with her sister by a single mother who owned her own business in Denver, she was taught at an early age the meaning of hard work.

A month before her college graduation, her family was notified that they had lost their ranch to a loophole in President Obama’s mortgage re-modification program. Faced with a 30-day eviction, her family was forced out of their home and off their land into a motel. While homeless, she received a call from a family friend asking if she would be interested in working on a first-time candidate’s campaign for Congress in Florida. Motivated by her family’s experience, she moved to Florida with nothing but her clothes and two fishing rods. At age 24, Cammack was the campaign’s only staff member, helping secured Ted Yoho’s primary win. Today, she continues to spearhead the Congressman’s political activities as well as serves as his Deputy Chief of Staff.

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or in other capacities?

I believe that the youth should always be involved regardless of their affiliations. Too often, I hear from my peers that their vote doesn’t count or that they cannot make a difference. Our first election was won by 829 votes. That not only dramatically changed my life, Congressman Yoho’s life, but it changed the lives of the people in our community. We as Millennials are inheriting the policies and decisions that are being made by previous generations. It is our future so it is imperative that our voice is heard and that we have a seat at the decision making table.

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

Candidates and elected officials alike need to understand that if they cannot stand on their own merits, then they should not be in the race or in office. Today’s tactics of slamming your opponent does nothing for Millennials. For example, in the upcoming Presidential race all we are hearing about is #StopHillary. #StopHillary is not a strategy. We need a strong leader to paint a vision for America — not a paid media campaign telling us why we shouldn’t vote for someone. If our leaders cannot tell us why their ideas are good for our country and where they want to take us, then they don’t deserve our votes.

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

In 10 years, I would like to see the GOP go from the “Grand Old Party” to the “Great Opportunity Party.” This starts with strong conservatives serving at the local, state, and national level all over the country as activists, elected officials, and volunteers. We can no longer afford to leave it to others to secure our future which is why it is so important for young people to be educated, engaged, and activated.
