White Makes $1.25 Million Contribution To His Attorney General Campaign

June 13, 2018

Republican Frank White, who has started a million-dollar ad run in his bid for attorney general, reported his campaign brought in more than $1.3 million in May, with much of the money coming from his own checkbook.

White’s monthly total topped the rest of the Republican field seeking to replace term-limited Attorney General Pam Bondi.

White, a state House member from Pensacola who also serves as general counsel and chief financial officer for the chain of Sandy Sansing auto dealerships, added $1.25 million of his own money into the contest on May 29.

The Sansing dealerships and White’s in-laws, who own the chain, have given at least $204,000 to the campaign and a closely aligned political committee known as United Conservatives but weren’t among the May contributors. However, White drew $27,750 from 14 auto dealers and dealerships across the state.

He also picked up $10,000 contributions from a Florida Insurance Council political committee and the Florida Prosperity Fund, which is tied to the business group Associated Industries of Florida.

White also put $1.5 million of his own money into the contest in October. Hs campaign and United Conservatives had an overall total of $3.4 million on hand as June began.

Last week, White’s campaign announced a $1 million TV ad campaign, titled “Hold Accountable,” which pushes his conservative views.

    Just another millionaire politician. Why can’t we elect people more like us?

    REGARDING:
    “Let’s take up a collection and run a poor person for office”

    Nah.

    A person who couldn’t amass more moolah than I have isn’t careful enough to be trusted with the job.

    David for good stewardship

    Isn’t this the guy that slams liberal “elites” in his ads?

    Must be nice to be elite enough to donate over a million dollars to your own campaign, bub.

    Millionaire running for office, so what else is new? Let’s take up a collection and run a poor person for office who accepts no funds from major corporations like insurance companies.

    Attorney General must pay well to spend 3.5 million of your own money to get the job……

    That’s sarcasm, by the way……
