MIAMI (AP) - Former Tampa prosecutor Republican Pam Bondi has been elected Florida's first female attorney general.
Bondi rode a wave of anti-incumbent sentiment that helped the
political unknown to a comfortable victory over Democrat state Sen.
Dan Gelber. She campaigned on national issues including a promise to challenge President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
With 72 percent of the expected vote counted Tuesday, Bondi had 56 percent, while Gelber had 44 percent.
The 44-year-old Bondi supports Arizona-style immigration law for Florida, saying the federal government's failure to effectively
address the issue has left states to fend for themselves.
Bondi, who got a boost early in the primary from former Alaska
Gov. Sarah Palin, has become a frequent contributor to Fox News.
