The number of top Florida Republicans calling today for Rep. Trey Radel to resign in the wake of his arrest last week for cocaine possession grew even longer today.

Pam Bondi, the Republican attorney general, told ABC News today that Radel should not stay in office.

"As a career prosecutor, I understand the devastating effects that addiction can have on one's life," Bondi told ABC News.  "While I understand that this is a challenging time for Trey and his family, I believe that he should resign."  Bondi also said that she "will continue to keep Trey and his family" in her prayers.
