COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- In a debate between Democratic candidates for governor of Maryland, Attorney General Doug Gansler got off to a quick start Wednesday night, criticizing Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown for the state's rocky health exchange rollout.

Gansler says Brown is responsible for "an unmitigated disaster," and he says there has been a "coverup" in getting all the facts about what went wrong.

Brown says everyone involved with the state's health exchange bears some responsibility for its problems, including himself. He says he took action to reorganize exchange leadership and many have enrolled despite the problems.

Del. Heather Mizeur says she wasn't pointing fingers. She focused on efforts she has made to improve health care as a member of the House of Delegates.
