Hillsborough/Pinellas state Senator Charlie Justice has worked with both men, and likes and respects them. He calls Gelber "an extraordinary public servant" and says Aronberg "has a passion for being attorney general." He says as a Democrat he doesn't think there's a bad choice possible, and says he thinks that after four years of Bill McCollum's reign in office it will be good to get politics out of that office.
"I thought that his office staff has worked well, but I think he has knee-jerked in too many places," Justice says.
Most Democrats are united on that, which is why there probably won't be too much division in their ranks after August 24.
