Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, a longtime Donald Trump loyalist in the Sunshine State, landed a spot on the president-elect's transition team, Politico reports.

According to Politico, Bondi – named to the transition team's executive committee – was admired by Trump for standing up to sharp criticism of her donation to the billionaire shortly before her office decided not to bring a fraud case against Trump University. Bondi and Trump denied any wrongdoing.

"She's trusted by the president-elect because she knows not only Florida but the legal community across the nation," Florida lobbyist Brian Ballard told Politico. "No one has his and the country's interests at heart as much as Pam Bondi."

Her name's also been floated as a possible U.S. attorney general nominee, pitting her against former U.S. attorney and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who's considered a favorite, Politico reports.

She joins the 16-member transition team that includes members of Congress, Trump's campaign CEO, three of the president-elect's children and his son in law.
