GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)-- The field of candidates to replace third district congressman Ted Yoho is going to need a few more acres.

Another Republican has filed to run-- Fleming Island business consultant David Theus.

Clay County commissioner Gavin Rollins has announced his candidacy. That brings the total number of candidates who have filed, announced or are exploring a run to 11. Three Democrats are in the race.

Yoho announced late last year he will not seek a fifth term in congress. Qualifying for the seat is in April.
