TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Long rumored for a job in the Trump administration, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will serve as moderator Wednesday at a "Women's Empowerment Panel" at the White House.

The panel is slated to include Betsy DeVos, U.S. secretary of education; Linda McMahon, administrator of the Small Business Administration; Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations; and Seema Verma, administrator of the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, according to an announcement.

"As Florida's first female attorney general, I am honored to moderate this panel with such remarkable and accomplished leaders," Bondi, an early political supporter of President Donald Trump, said in a prepared statement.
