Those who protect our families continue to put their support behind Bill Schuette

LANSING – The Bill Schuette for Governor campaign today announced that Attorney General Bill Schuette has received the endorsement of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

Schuette, the conservative candidate for governor, is the leader in support from prosecutors, police and public safety officials who know he is the best choice to make Michigan a safe state and a growth state.

No candidate in the Michigan gubernatorial race, Republican or Democrat, has the same deep support of those who know what it takes to keep Michigan families safe.

“Serving together as fellow attorneys general the last nearly eight years, I have come to know and respect Bill Schuette,” said Bondi.  “Bill Schuette knows that it is our duty to defend the Constitution, keep our families safe, and help our states to grow and thrive.”

“Bill Schuette is the strong, conservative leader Michigan needs as its next governor and he has my full support.

Schuette praised Bondi as a national leader in public safety.  “Attorney General Pam Bondi is an outstanding attorney general, someone who has served as a leader in the fight against the opioid addiction epidemic and efforts to protect the survivors of human trafficking,” said Schuette. “I am thankful for Attorney General Bondi’s support and look forward to continuing to work with her on all these important issues.”

Bondi, first elected in 2010, is the first female attorney general in Florida history.  Prior to serving as attorney general she was a prosecutor with 18 years of experience in taking on the toughest cases, from domestic violence to murder.  Like Attorney General Schuette, Bondi has made it a priority to attack the opioid epidemic, serving on the President’s Opioid and Drug Abuse Commission, and is fighting Human Trafficking in Florida as the chair of that state’s anti-trafficking commission.
