In their only TV debate, Attorney General candidates Pam Bondi and Dan Gelber tangled over issues like gay adoption and the new health care law. If elected, Republican Bondi wants to push ahead with a law suit challenging the federal health care reform law.

But Gelber, a Democrat, thinks the lawsuit is frivolous and has no chance of succeeding.

Gelber opposes Florida’s ban on allowing gay couples to adopt, a policy a judge recently found to be unconstitutional.

Bondi says she’ll follow the current law.
