Florida's GOP candidates switch support for Arizona's immigration law

The Republican Party's front-runner for governor, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, threw his support Thursday behind a tough new immigration law in Arizona that he criticized as "far out" just two weeks ago. McCollum joined U.S. Senate contender Marco Rubio in abandoning his previous opposition to the toughest crackdown on illegal immigration in the nation. Both said they changed positions in light of amendments that aimed to outlaw ethnic and racial profiling by the police.
