TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Republican Ashley Moody will be Florida's next attorney general.
  
Moody defeated Democratic state Sen. Sean Shaw in Tuesday's election. Moody is a former judge and federal prosecutor from the Tampa area.
  
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 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.
