Steve Cooley says he would not hesitate to collect his local pension if he were elected attorney general.

The attorney general makes about half of what Cooley currently makes as Los Angeles district attorney.

"I've definitely earned any pension rights I have," the candidate said in Tuesday's debate with Kamala Harris.

When asked for a response, Harris said with a laugh, "Go for it, Steve. You've earned it; there's no question."

Live coverage of the entire debate is available here.
