MIAMI (AP) - With billions at stake over Gulf oil damage claims and a pending lawsuit over new federal health care laws, the next attorney general Florida voters choose may be their most influential in years.
But there's no clear front runner among the three conservative Republicans and two Democrats who have struggled to distinguish themselves from one another.
Republicans Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp, Holly Benson and Pam Bondi are aligned in their support of gun rights, tougher immigration laws, and calls to repeal President Barack Obama's healthcare program. The two Democrats, state senators Dave Aronberg and Dan Gelber, are focused on rooting out public corruption and Medicare fraud.
Experts say many voters will make last minute decisions about who to support.
