TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is keeping her future plans secret for now.

Bondi on Tuesday would not say whether she has plans on joining the administration of President-elect Donald Trump. She also said she is "not prepared to answer" whether she will stay the state's attorney general.

There has been rampant speculation about Bondi since the election. She was a staunch supporter of Trump and was the first statewide-elected Republican to back him.

Bondi is on Trump's transition team and met with him last week in New York City.

Bondi has been elected twice. If she stays attorney general, she will have to step down from her post in early 2019 due to term limits.

Gov. Rick Scott would appoint a successor to Bondi if she leaves office early.
