A conversation with AG candidate Frank White

White stressed his conservative record and values, saying those principles are key in the AG’s role.

PANAMA CITY — State Rep. Frank White of Pensacola said if elected as Florida’s attorney general he would bring his conservative values to the seat.

“I am running as a Constitutional conservative,” the Republican candidate said during an interview Friday morning at The News Herald. “It’s who I am. I believe the attorney general’s No. 1 job is defending the Constitution and the rule of law. And to me that means our enumerated rights in the Constitution, Second Amendment rights, the right to life, the Constitutional structure, issues related to federalism and making sure politicians are held accountable.”

White is the chief financial officer and general counsel for the Sansing Dealer Group, a company with more 650 employees and stores throughout Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. He graduated from Southern Methodist University School of Law and was the president of the Federalist Society chapter. He has practiced law in Texas and Florida for over 15 years. Before entering public service, he practiced law as an attorney at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, a national law firm.
