TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody was re-elected after she won against former state attorney Aramis Ayala.

Moody became Florida’s 38th Attorney General in January 2019. Since taking office, Moody has been recognized as a leader having served as a Commissioner on the Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice, as Chair of Florida’s Statewide Task Force on Opioid Abuse, and continues to serve as Chair of Florida’s Statewide Council on Human Trafficking.

Moody released the following statement after the win:

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.

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.

Attorney General Moody is a fifth generation Floridian, born and raised in Plant City, Florida. In 2006, at the age of 31, Moody became the youngest judge in Florida when she was elected Circuit Court Judge of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County.

Moody’s priorities lie in fighting for a safer Florida by supporting law enforcement, combatting human trafficking, tackling the opioid epidemic, and fighting for senior fraud. Her priorities are also to make Florida stronger by upholding the rule of law, supporting mental health, fighting federal overreach, and protecting Florida’s future.

She feels strongly about systemic inequality and began her commitment to reform in 2001 when she relocated to Florida. Ayala said she will never remain silent in the face of inhumanity, injustice, and systematic racism.

Ayala’s focal point in her campaign has been to fight for the LGBTQ+ community, women and minorities. She has also shown her commitment to focus on domestic violence and gun violence to reduce violent crime. Ayala has instituted reforms and policies in an effort to reduce recidivism and increase public safety.
