Pam Bondi includes Dave Aronberg and Holly Benson on her transition team



Attorney General-elect Pam Bondi's transition team includes two people who made failed runs for the office: Republican Holly Benson and Democrat Dave Aronberg. Aronberg is on the group advising Bondi on pill mills and Benson is on the Medicaid fraud group. 

Chairing the transition team are former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker. former House Speaker Larry Cretul, and Attorney General Bill McCollum. Attorney Carlos Muniz, a former deputy general counsel to Gov. Jeb Bush, is executive director. In a news release, Bondi said the team is focusing on her top priorities: Protecting children, families, taxpayers and consumers; fighting the federal healthcare law; and boosting the economy. All team members have been asked to agree to an ethics pledge that includes a one-year prohibition on lobbying the Office of the Attorney General.
