AIF Backs Pam Bondi for AG
Former Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi scored a big endorsement in the battle for the Republican attorney general nomination on Thursday when she received the backing of the Associated Industries of Florida PAC. AIF chose Bondi over Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp and former Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Holly Benson.
“A fresh face in Florida politics, Pam Bondi is a veteran prosecutor who has the courtroom experience needed to serve as our state’s chief legal officer,” said AIF President and CEO Barney Bishop. “Ideologically and philosophically, she stands with Florida’s business community and her views on how to run the Attorney General’s office closely align with ours.”
“As Attorney General, know that I will focus on ensuring public safety and protecting our most vulnerable citizens,” said Bondi. “Additionally, as a cabinet member, I will fight to promote our state’s economic well being.”
“I am committed to advancing policies that encourage business growth and job creation and reject government’s tendency to overregulate and stymie the free market system,” said Bondi. “I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Associated Industries of Florida PAC, and look forward to working with this esteemed organization on the issues affecting our state, including overturning the unconstitutional federal health care mandate.”
