Brant or “Five” (as his friends call him) has served as a volunteer in the campaigns of Gary Bauer, Saxby Chambliss, and Sonny Perdue. He also served as county campaign manager for Jeff Chapman and Max Wood in 2010.
In 2010, Brant was appointed to serve as Vice Chairman of the Newnan Urban Redevelopment Agency. In 2013, he was appointed Chairman of the agency.
In 2011, Brant was elected as 1st Vice Chair of the Coweta County Republican Party (CCRP) along with future State Senator Mike Crane (2nd Vice Chair).
In late 2011, Brant worked closely with Mike Crane in Crane’s successful bid to win a special election to the state senate. Brant would go on to serve as legislative aide to Senator Crane in the 2012, 2013, and 2014 sessions of the Georgia General Assembly.
In April 2012, Brant was elected to represent the Third Congressional District of Georgia to the Republican National Convention in Tampa serving as the youngest delegate from Georgia.
During the 2012 election season Frost volunteered on the campaigns of Robert Stokely, Kevin McMurry, and David Stover. In 2013, Frost was elected as Chairman of the CCRP without opposition.
As a young Christian and Tea Party Conservative Frost has always striven to conduct himself in a manner that would be a credit to his Lord, his family, and his country.
