MIAMI — Katherine Fernandez Rundle has been the state attorney in Miami-Dade County for more than 30 years.

Since then, she has won re-election seven times and if no one files in the next two weeks to run against her this year, she will automatically be re-elected to another four-year term.

Rundle is credited with creating the state's first domestic violence court and a human trafficking task force among other things. But, her tenure has not been without controversy.

She has never filed charges against a police officer for shooting and killing someone on duty, even though there have been numerous questionable police shootings.
