TAMPA, Fla. – Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody was re-elected this evening to another four-year term as the state’s chief legal officer.
“Thank you to the millions of voters who participated in our state’s open and transparent election process. I am honored to represent all Floridians who believe, as I do, that we deserve to live in a state where we back our men and women in blue and hold accountable those who prey on our most vulnerable, whether through human and drug trafficking, or senior scams and other fraudulent practices. These priorities will remain in sharp focus throughout my second term as your Attorney General, along with fighting against federal overreach, protecting our borders, combatting the fentanyl epidemic, and working toward a stronger, safer Florida. Thank you for the honor of serving Florida families, and those who call the Sunshine State home,” said Attorney General Moody.
Attorney General Moody joined Gov. Ron DeSantis, First Lady Casey DeSantis, and other local and statewide elected officials and supporters at the Tampa Convention Center on election night, where she thanked her campaign volunteers, staff, and donors whose strong support since she first announced her candidacy in September 2021 helped secure her second term in office.
