FL Attorney General Candidate Visits Panama City

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - A candidate running to be Florida's next Attorney General made a stop in the Panhandle.

On Tuesday, Republican candidate Ashley Moody spoke with News 13 while visiting Panama City.

She's from Plant City, and worked as an attorney and federal prosecutor in Tampa and Jacksonville. Moody also served as a circuit court judge for the 13th Judicial Circuit for more than ten years.

She says as a lawyer she's tackled drugs cases, and addressed the growing problem with the opioid epidemic.

"You have to have an attorney general that vows to be aggressive on this front - making it a priority in the office to put away drug traffickers and people that are trying to prey on our most vulnerable, but we also have to be smart about it and understand that the way we've been approaching this problem in the past may not have been the best way," said Moody.

Incumbent Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi is term-limited and cannot seek re-election to a third consecutive term.

Voters will make their choice in the mid-term election November 6th of next year.
