Matt Gaetz endorses Ashley Moody for AG

Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz of northwest Florida has endorsed fellow Republican Ashley Moody to be elected the state’s next attorney general in 2018.

“Florida needs an Attorney General with the experience to make headway against the dangers we face as Floridians, the courage to stand up for law enforcement, and the fortitude to defend our Constitutional rights,” Gaetz said in a statement.

The former Florida House member’s name had been floated briefly as a possible AG candidate himself.

“I’m proud to endorse Ashley Moody who with her years of experience as a prosecutor and judge will bring insight and fresh perspective to the incredibly important role of Attorney General,” he added. “I have no doubt that Ashley Moody will continue our fight for conservative priorities in Tallahassee.”

Gaetz “is recognized in Florida and nationally as a true conservative leader, an advocate for smaller, more efficient government, and a zealous defender of our Second Amendment,” Moody said. “He is an outspoken supporter of our law enforcement community, working for years to support their mission of keeping our state safe. I am greatly honored to have his endorsement.”
