TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Republican Ashley Moody will be Florida's next attorney general.

Moody defeated Democratic state Sen. Sean Shaw in Tuesday's election. During the campaign she pointed out that Shaw had never prosecuted a case and that his first shouldn't be as attorney general.

Moody is a former judge and federal prosecutor from the Tampa area. She is a fifth-generation Floridian.

She will take over the position held by Republican Pam Bondi, who was barred from seeking re-election because of term limits.
