BOB WHITE ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR GOVERNOR
Pledges to be a champion for the people of Florida
Melbourne, Florida – Monday, May 22, 2017 – Robert “Bob” White of Melbourne has filed to run for Governor of the state of Florida. Bob White is a fourth generation Floridian with a passion for politics and an unwavering commitment to the Constitution and limited government. He serves as the Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida (RLCFL), Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Central East Florida (RLCCEF) and is the founder and former Chairman of the Liberty Catalyst Fund (LCF).
Having witnessed first-hand the growing influence of special interest money on the political and legislative process in Florida, White made a personal commitment to the issues of political integrity in Florida elections and meaningful campaign finance reform. He has been instrumental in establishing the Come Clean Florida coalition as the vehicle for achieving these reforms.
“For the last eight years I’ve been going to Tallahassee during the legislative session to promote Liberty issues; limited government, personal freedom and free markets. I’ve seen the environment in Tallahassee change dramatically during that time. The people of Florida have lost their voice in the legislative process. It’s been drowned out by the dark money politics of the special interests and the politicians that are only too happy to play their game. The special interests have their champions in Tallahassee. Politicians line up to do their bidding in exchange for their six figure contributions. The people of Florida need a champion too! I will be their voice! I will be their champion!”
Mr. White will make his official announcement Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 2:30pm before the Republican Liberty Caucus’ national convention being held at the Rosen Centre Hotel, 9840 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819. The event is open to the public and press.
