ORLANDO- Dave White, Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, has exclusively revealed to Fox News that he will sit down with former President Trump at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to seek his endorsement.
“I can’t wait to meet the president. He’s done great things for the United States. He’s put America first, like what I’m trying to do in Pennsylvania, putting Pennsylvania first, putting putting people back to work, getting good jobs,” White said.

White, a former steam fitter who made millions as an HVAC business owner, has already contributed $4 million of his own money to the race, according to a campaign official.
“I’m running for governor because I was one of those businesses 20 months ago that was shut down by Governor Wolf with no plan,” White said.

“Debbie and I, my wife, started a business 20 years ago, built it to $85 million a year. For someone from the government to come and say you have to shut down is a mistake. That doesn’t never should have happened in Pennsylvania.”
White sits in a crowded primary field that includes former U.S. Representative Lou Barletta and William McSwain, a former U.S. attorney.
Another primary candidate is Doug Mastriano, a state senator who was subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 commission for his possible role in altering the results of the 2020 presidential election. Mastriano has denied any involvement in the January 6 riot at the United States Capitol.

White said he was the best at it because he could bring many of Trump’s ideas to Pennsylvania.
“I’m a pipe fitter and I restarted a business 20 years ago and grew it into a very successful business. And I’m going to bring a business type attitude similar to what Donald Trump did in Washington,” said White said. “I want to bring that to Pennsylvania, so we can get things done.”
