On a question of party unity, Pam Bondi ducks

23

August

Pam Bondi likes to talk about how she's not a typical politician. But on a softball question about party unity, she showed the deftness of a career pol.

The Buzz put a pro forma question to all three Republican attorney general candidates: If you lose Tuesday night, will you enthusiastically support the duly elected nominee of your party?

"Absolutely," said Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp. "Certainly," said Kristen Bridges, a spokeswoman for Holly Benson.

But Bondi, who has voiced disgust at the brickbats tossed her way by Kottkamp, won't commit: "I haven't even thought about that. I'm focusing on winning Tuesday night," Bondi said.
