Aronberg, Gelber a state apart in last-minute push for attorney generalby Dara Kam | August 21st, 2010
The Democratic candidates for attorney general spent the day in opposite parts of the state waving signs and knocking on doors in a last-ditch effort to win votes in Tuesday’s primary election.
State Sen. Dave Aronberg is spending the day in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. His opponent, Dan Gelber, is stumping in North Florida with stops in Tallahassee and Pensacola.
Gelber topped all of the attorney general candidates – including the three Republicans in a tight primary – in campaign contributions. He edged out opponent Aronberg, who led the raise in fundraising until this month, by just $11,000.
Like the Republican primary, the Aronberg and Gelber race is too close to call.
“With 43 percent undecided this is anyone’s game right now,” Aronberg said while going door-to-door in South Florida.
