Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, an early supporter of newly elected President Donald Trump, was named Friday to a position on Trump's transition team.
Bondi was one of 16 people appointed to the Presidential Transition Team Executive Committee, according to a news release. Trump also made a series of other transition-related appointments, with incoming Vice President Mike Pence serving as chairman of the presidential transition team.
"I’m honored to serve President-elect Donald J. Trump in making this historic transition and assisting in finding the best individuals to bring change to Washington on day one, grow our economy, protect our children and families, and be unafraid to stand up for Americans," Bondi said in a statement.
She is also rumored to be on the list for a place in Mr. Trump's administration.
