TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Democratic attorney general candidate George Sheldon says Attorney General Pam Bondi's priorities are out of line with most Floridians and does not deserve to be re-elected.

Sheldon, who left his position in the Obama administration to challenge the incumbent Republican, said Wednesday that Bondi's latest misstep was represented by her opposition to have a medical marijuana amendment put on the November ballot that was upheld earlier this week by the Florida Supreme Court.

Speaking at the 20th annual legislative editors meeting hosted by The Associated Press, Sheldon said Bondi's office has failed to put enough emphasis on white collar crime and civil rights issues.

Bondi was to speak to the group later Wednesday.
