Sarah Palin has endorsed Pam Bondi over two other candidates in Florida's Republican primary for attorney general.
The former Alaska governor posted her endorsement on her Facebook page Wednesday.
Bondi, Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp, and Holly Benson are on the Republican ballot. They share support of gun rights, tougher immigration laws and calls to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
Palin described Bondi as a "bold, sharp, selfless" leader who will "push back against any overreach of the federal government."
Two Democrats — state Sens. Dave Aronberg and Dan Gelber — also are running for attorney general.
Republican Attorney General Bill McCollum is seeking the governor's office in a bitter race with businessman Rick Scott.
