Amy Pope Wells, a Green Cove Springs Republican, is in the race for Florida’s District 3 congressional seat now held by Rep. Ted Yoho.
A self-described conservative, Wells owns and operates two businesses with her husband, Craig Wells. She has also worked as a critical care nurse.
Wells has served as chairwoman of the Clay County Chamber of Commerce and on a sheriff’s office task force. In 2017 she was appointed by President Donald Trump to serve on a committee that supports the United States-Canada Council for the Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders.
Yoho, a Gainesville Republican, has not said if he will seek re-election. He pledged to serve only eight years when he was elected in 2012.
Also vying for the District 3 seat are Republicans Joseph Dallas Millado of Fleming Island and Judson Sapp of Green Cove Springs, and Gainesville Democrats Philip Dodds and Tom Wells.
District 3 covers all of Alachua, Clay, Putnam, Bradford and Union counties, and much of Marion County. Yoho won the district in his first political campaign in 2012 and has easily held on to it since then.
