Gov. Rick Scott, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam pray at the start of the Florida Senate's organizational session Tuesday. But where's Attorney General Pam Bondi?

November

It's a big day in the Capitol as the state House and Senate elect leaders and organize for the 2017-2018 term -- big enough that Gov. Rick Scott, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and most of the Florida Cabinet are on hand.

But one member of the Cabinet isn't here: Attorney General Pam Bondi.

She is working. Bondi called in to a meeting of the Elections Canvassing Commission with Scott and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater.

A Bondi spokeswoman did not reply to multiple emails asking about the attorney general’s whereabouts.

She could well be in New York helping with President-elect Donald Trump’s transition to the White House. Trump named Bondi to the executive committee of his transition team. She is also considered a frontrunner for an appointment in the new administration.
