TALLAHASSEE - A spokeswoman confirmed today that Attorney General Pam Bondi will run for re-election next year.

Bondi, a former Hillsborough County prosecutor, first won the office in 2010. She beat Democrat Dan Gelber with nearly 55 percent of the vote.

Bondi first became well known statewide as a legal analyst on national news programs. The Temple Terrace native is the only woman now in statewide elected office.

She has yet to draw a Democratic challenger.
