Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi got a Democratic opponent Monday, Democrat George Sheldon.
George Sheldon, who recently stepped down as an assistant secretary in the Obama administrations’ Health and Human Services Dept., said he plans to return “character” to the Attorney General’s office.
Sheldon says Bondi has been fighting the wrong fights for the wrong reasons. “I see an unwillingness to even reach out a hand to the federal government, an unwillingness to expand Medicaid to folks who are trying to work their way into the middle class, a demagoguery about the affordable care act.”
In addition to serving in Washington under President Obama, The Democratic contender has run Florida’s Department of Children and Families, served as an Assistant Attorney General, and been elected to the State House from Tampa.
