Florida candidates give and take during debate

Editor's Note: Tune into CNN at 7 p.m. ET on October 25, when Chief National Correspondent John King, anchor of "John King USA," will host the next Florida gubernatorial debate between Alex Sink and Rick Scott.

(CNN) - Florida gubernatorial candidates Democrat Alex Sink and Republican Rick Scott did not shy away from personal attacks or sharp-tongued remarks during Wednesday's debate.

Scott, a former businessman, attempted to capitalize on the election season's anti-incumbent fever when he referred to Sink, the state's chief financial officer, as a "Tallahassee insider."

Sink returned fire when she referred Scott, a billionaire health executive, as a "corporate raider," and questioned his business dealings.
