Republican incumbent Ashley Moody has been reelected as Florida Attorney General in the 2022 midterm election.
Moody has served as attorney general since January 2019 after she defeated Democratic nominee Sean Shaw in the 2018 midterm election.
Prior to her initial election as Attorney General, Moody occupied several positions within the legal system, including assistant U.S. Attorney for Florida’s Middle District and Circuit Court Judge for the 13th Judicial Circuit of Florida.
Moody was considered one of former president Donald Trump’s greatest allies in Florida during the 2020 presidential election, joining Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit to overturn election results in several states won by Joe Biden.
In her tenure as Attorney General, Ashley Moody focused on several issues affecting Floridians. She pursued action against the legalization of recreational marijuana, restoration of voting rights to felons and the Affordable Care Act.
