FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Today, the Pam Bondi campaign announced the endorsement of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, which published their endorsement in an editorial over the weekend. The fifth endorsement by a major Florida newspaper underlines two straight months of surging success for the Bondi campaign, as business advocates, social conservatives, and prominent Floridians have affirmed her message and joined her campaign.
“The key point made in this editorial is that Pam Bondi has a vision for the role of chief legal officer in Florida,” said Jim Blosser, Finance Chair for Bondi for Attorney General in Broward County, “and isn’t just looking for the next political job like her opponents. Pam has more experience and better ideas, and I am confident she will win on August 24.”
Excerpts from the editorial about Pam Bondi:
“Pam Bondi has extensive legal experience, and shows more enthusiasm for the post than her GOP rivals. But what differentiates Bondi from her opponents is her ability to vision herself as the state’s chief legal officer, rather than someone who’d use the office as a political bully pulpit.”
“Bondi has way more legal experience than her opponents.”
“Bondi has spent years going after crooks, and she says she would step up the attorney general’s anti-gang efforts. She also vows to carry out vigorously the office’s core responsibility to protect consumers. And she would revive the attorney general’s role as a citizen’s advocate for open government.”
“Pam Bondi is the best Republican candidate.”
Excerpts from the editorial about Pam Bondi’s opponents:
“Rival Holly [Benson's] priorities for this post are misplaced.”
“The third candidate, Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp, of Cape Coral, holds a largely ceremonial post. He cites his experience as a lawyer, but it falls way short of what Bondi provides.”
