McCollum, Bondi solicit GOP support for federal health care lawsuitby Dara Kam | November 18th, 2010
Attorney General Bill McCollum and his successor Pam Bondi are urging fellow Republicans throughout the country to join his lawsuit against the federal government over the new federal health care law.
McCollum and Bondi, who will take over on Jan. 4., sent a letter to 13 Republicans who won election this month as attorneys general or governor hoping to shore up support for the lawsuit now working its way through the federal courts.
“Having a majority of the states litigating our constitutional rights is a powerful message,” they wrote.
Oral argument on the case is set for Dec. 16 in Pensacola.
