DEBATE between Bob White (R) Liberty Caucus and Bruce Nathan (R) - 5/1

Florida’s governor race is critically important for our state. Find out what these candidates say on the top issues and get YOUR questions answered.

Bob White Bio

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). The Liberty Catalyst Fund is an electioneering communications organization whose mission is to educate voters on issues of liberty, freedom, constitutional integrity and limited government. The LCF works to promote candidates that demonstrate a commitment to these principles and oppose candidates that do not.

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.

Bruce Nathan Bio

As a Physical Therapist for over 20 years, Bruce Nathan started as a pediatric therapist and in the last year has become a PT working with patients of all ages. Bruce and his family came to Florida in 2000 to work for the Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services.

In 2016, Bruce wanted to discover more about the problems with the healthcare system and began working with many agencies via his own practice. This now independent operation has given Bruce more flex time to run his campaign and to learn more about how to fix the current health care problems.

He visits 5 to 8 homes a day for physical therapy home care and gets to hear a lot about healthcare issues while working with his patients!

Bruce Nathan joined the United States Army Reserves directly after 9/11 to help in any capacity he could. At the time, Bruce was a registered Democrat- but just like his hero, President Reagan, he changed to the Republican Party.

Bruce was honorably discharged as captain from United States Army Reserves in February 2010 as he stayed over his eight-year contract to do one more mission.

Bruce was never about politics or the party system as his children kept him busy with coaching little league, baseball and softball, for a good part of 10 years. He also volunteered as the creator and producer of the “For Your Kids” Radio program with his children that ran for 12 years.

Issues surrounding problems with children has been foremost on his mind for years as many politicians appear to have little interest, except where it may affect their voting constituents!

Martial Arts has been a primary interest to him since Bruce was 10 years old, and he has made sure his children would learn various styles with the latest, Krav Maga, used in Israeli combat training.

Bruce and his wife Chrissy have six children. His thoughts and feelings are pro-life and conservative.

Bruce is the author of the Book Senator Who? which is his autobiography before he ran for the US Senate in 2016. He did that as an NPA or “No Party Affiliate” candidate. This non-party status helped him to see what it was like to run for office.

As he kept working, he ran around the state three times to over 100 events and garnished 52,000 votes after spending about $17,000 in comparison to his opponents who spent $40 million dollars in total.

Bruce received no media attention and very little money, but that never discouraged him. His dedication for political change is in the best interest of his and all the children of the state and country.

Now Bruce is running for governor of Florida back with the Republican Party, offering his expertise in communication with people, and knowledge of how politics works.

He is dedicated to not play the games of most politicians or people running for an office. A positive approach about the issues is all Bruce wants to present to the potential voters. Accessibility is another key to his candidacy and as a future governor.

Bruce believes that elected officials should not live in an ivory tower and as governor he will open satellite offices to increase his ability to meet with all who want to share their thoughts and ideas on the issues facing our country today.

And Bruce Nathan knows that saying Good-Bye Lobbying will help our state say Good-Bye Corruption!
