Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum has launched the state's appeal to overturn Judge Cindy Lederman's decision declaring the state's homophobic adoption ban against gays and lesbians unconstitutional.

Here's the brief:


Bill McCollum is also running for governor of Florida in 2010 against Alex Sink, the Florida CFO who was an outspoken opponent of Amendment 2 and who recently spoke to the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus in support of the community.

The American Conservative Union gave McCollum a lifetime grade of 89 for his votes on issues like business-friendly legal reform, tax limits and abortion restrictions.

We'll be covering both the Gay Adoption case and the gubernatorial race as they progress here in Florida.
