Frank White talks faith in new ad

Pensacola Republican Rep. Frank White shared his testimony of becoming a Christian in a new video released by his Attorney General campaign ahead of the Easter holiday.

The new ad is the second video White’s campaign has put out since he filed for AG in October.

“I am a Christian. Jesus Christ changed my life,” White said in the video.

“While I grew up in church, it didn’t become real to me until I was an adult. Shortly before law school my dad passed away unexpectedly. You know, before then I had kinda been ‘good’ and ‘moral,’ but really life – I lived life for myself.

“Through that shock, God just, he spoke to me. Through so many friends, family I felt God’s love. Over that summer, over some weeks and months, I started to explore and think ‘what does this thing, what does it really mean to be a believer and to know Christ?’ It really became real to me and I was a born-again Christian, and since then, for me, that’s what life’s about.

“Life is not about us, it’s about serving others. We are living in God’s will if we are doing our best to share God’s love everywhere. That’s our calling. That’s hope for the future here on Earth for me,” he said.

White, currently in his first term representing House District 2, is one of four Republicans running to replace termed-out Attorney General Pam Bondi in the fall.

He faces former judge Ashley Moody, Jacksonville Rep. Jay Fant and Dover Rep. Ross Spano in the Republican Primary for the Cabinet post. Tampa Rep. Sean Shaw and Ryan Torrens are competing for the Democratic nomination.

White led the money race as of Feb. 28 with just under $2 million on hand between his campaign account and political committee, United Conservatives.
