Has Pam Bondi recovered since her poor performance at Tiger Bay?

in Statewide by

Recently, I had the pleasure of running into state Sen. Dave Aronberg, whom I asked which GOP candidate would he rather face in the general: Holly Benson, Pam Bondi or Jeff Kottkamp.  Of course he didn’t take the bait and actually answer the question, but while we were talking I began to ask myself: Has Pam Bondi recovered yet from her poor performance at Suncoast Tiger Bay and the subsequent media coverage about her spotty voting record?

The Florida Police Benevolent Association (PBA) continued its endorsements today, announcing that it was backing Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp for attorney general. As Kevin Derby notes, With more than 36,000 members, the PBA could be a big factor in a tight Republican primary as Kottkamp faces challenges from Pam Bondi and Holly Benson. “Lieutenant Governor Kottkamp has stood strong with law enforcement and correctional officers throughout Florida,” said PBA President John Rivera. “Because of that long-term support of fighting for…

Why didn’t Pam Bondi answer questions today about 2008 Amendment 1 campaign? Because she didn’t bother to vote in that election

in Statewide/The Bay and the 'Burg by

At this afternoon’s Tiger Bay debate between the GOP aspirants for attorney general, candidate Pam Bondi was asked directly by political consultant Dave Zachem about how she voted in January 2008 on the much-discussed Amendment 1 ballot initiative (which doubled the homestead exemption for almost all Florida homeowners). This initiative was championed by Gov. Charlie Crist, who promised property taxes would “drop like a rock.”  With all of the money spent in support of Amendment 1, you would have had to been living…
