AG Pam Bondi files for re-election

From the News Service of Florida:

Attorney General Pam Bondi said Monday she filed papers to seek re-election in 2014, joining fellow Republican Cabinet members Jeff Atwater and Adam Putnam in taking formal steps to run again.

"Officially filed for re-elect this morning - looking forward to continuing working hard and serving the people of Florida!" Bondi said in a Twitter message.

Bondi's move was not a surprise, and it remains unclear who might challenge her from the Democratic Party.

Atwater, the state's chief financial officer, filed papers in 2011 indicating he would run again; Putnam, the agriculture commissioner, did so in April 2013. Gov. Rick Scott has not taken the formal step, though he has already made clear he will seek another term in 2014.

Bondi defeated Democrat Dan Gelber in 2010, receiving nearly 55 percent of the vote.

How many taxpayer dollars has this woman spent pursuing right wing extreme agendas and getting her ass handed to her in Court?
She is a joke and may be as bad as Rick Scott when it comes to her performance on the job.
What an embarrassment.

I did not know much about her before her initial election but she has been very impressive in her tenure as attorney general and is a rising star that should be our governor in 2018 and possibly headed for higher office later.

What ever happened with her Bahamas "marriage?"

Ms. Bondi will have a hard time getting the support of Conservatives after the persecution of George Zimmerman.
