The candidates for Alabama attorney general, Republican Luther Strange and Democrat James Anderson, disagree on several key legal issues facing the state, including the federal health care law.
Strange said he believes Alabama should be part of a lawsuit filed by about 20 states seeking to overturn the new health care insurance measure. Anderson opposes participating in the lawsuit at this time.
Anderson is a veteran courtroom attorney who has represented hundreds of clients in a lengthy career. Much of Strange's experience is working as a corporate attorney and as a lobbyist.
Anderson says Strange is only qualified to be "lobbyist general." But Strange says the job of the attorney general is to run "the people's law firm" and to manage a broad range of issues.
