Is Pam Bondi avoiding her rivals?



UPDATE: The Bondi campaign said this: "We informed Joseph Citro and Tiger Bay on June 24th that we had a conflict and regretfully couldn't make an appearance on the suggested date. We were the first to suggest debates among the GOP contenders for Attorney General, and are actively engaged with the Benson and Kottkamp campaigns on working out the details."


Keep an eye out for developments soon about a debate between the Republican candidates for attorney general. It's striking that Pam Bondi has not appeared with Holly Benson or Jeff Kottkamp since her less than stellar performance at the Suncoast Tiger Bay Club in St Pete June 3. At the last minute she backed out of another Tiger Bay appearance in Tampa Friday.

Bondi and Kottkamp have both called for debates, but so far nothing has been nailed down, including a July 31 debate tentatively set by Bay News 9 in Tampa and Central Florida News 13 in Orlando.
