Tennessee Senate candidates exchange barbs in final debate

Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn repeatedly attempted to tie her Democratic opponent Phil Bredesen to national Democrats in their second and final debate on Wednesday, while the former Tennessee governor deflected the attacks by once again promising to improve bipartisanship in Congress.

The two candidates exchanged barbs and went on the aggressive during Wednesday's hour-long event — based at the University of Tennessee's Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy — on topics ranging from health care, sexual misconduct allegations to gun control.
