Football is defining force in Clay Ingram’s newest HD 1 campaign ad

in Uncategorized by

Football has been a driving force in the life of Republican State Rep. Clay Ingram, giving him the skills and dedication he uses to serve Northwest Florida in House District 1.

Football has has been good to Ingram, a Pensacola native and two-term legislator, best known as the former Florida State University player who played on the undefeated 1999 National Championship team under Coach Bobby Bowden.

In his newest campaign ad, which runs starting this week, Ingraham talks about how football shaped his life and conservative values.

“I learned a lot on Northwest Florida practice fields,” he says. “You set goals, dedicate yourself, work hard and anything is possible.”

These lessons served Ingram well in Tallahassee.

“I took on the establishment to cut burdensome regulations and red tape,” he adds. “I fought Obamacare and against subsidies for illegal immigrants in our schools.”

Ingram faces Democrat Gloria Robertson-Wiggins in November for the district that includes most of Escambia County.

“My Life” is also available on YouTube.
