Tampa prosecutor Pam Bondi is touting the endorsement by former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin of her campaign in Florida’s Republican primary for attorney general.

Bondi is one of several female candidates Palin endorsed nationwide Wednesday — marking the 90th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Ammendment, which gave women the right to vote.

In a press release, Bondi — a Tampa native who has served as a prosecutor in the area for 18 years — called the endorsement a “surprise.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Sarah Palin, one of the most respected conservative women in our nation,” Bondi wrote.

Bondi is in a tight race for the Republican nomination for attorney general running against incumbent Florida Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp, and Holly Benson, a former state representative and secretary of the Agency for Health Care Administration.
