She said she doesn't believe in the separation of families at the border but said the administration is doing their best to correct it, and still follow the law.
"If i'm given the chance to be attorney general I will do so in a way they can be proud of their support, and will be a strong, effective attorney general for Florida," said Moody.
Moody will face fellow republican Frank White in the primary election in August. If she wins there she will face the winner of the democratic candidates in November.
