Florida's attorney general candidates disagree -- on just about everything

In the cozy confines of a cable TV studio, Pam Bondi and Dan Gelber exchanged light banter, but when the lights went on the tone changed dramatically.

So it goes for the candidates for Florida attorney general, who disagree on just about everything from President Obama's healthcare plan to restoring civil rights for former felons.

Bondi, 44, a Republican from Tampa, and Gelber, 49, a Miami Beach Democrat, both served as prosecutors, and each has tried to outdo the other in talking tough about chasing down crooks.

She worked for nearly two decades in the Hillsborough state attorney's office and he worked for a decade in the U.S. attorney's office in Miami.

Beyond that, the two lawyers have little in common, and they likely would bring very different styles and priorities to the state's largest law firm. More here.
