The two major party candidates in Connecticut's closely watched U.S. Senate race sparred over who is the best equipped to rejuvenate the economy and spur more jobs.
Republican Linda McMahon and Democrat Richard Blumenthal debated face-to-face for the second time Thursday morning in Norwalk. They disagreed over whether to keep all the Bush-era tax cuts, not just the middle-class cuts the president wants to continue.
Blumenthal, the state's attorney general, said the middle-class cuts should be made now. McMahon, former chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment, said all are needed to help small businesses.
Blumenthal took some shots at the WWE, accusing McMahon of tipping off a doctor involved in a federal steroids investigation. McMahon alleges Blumenthal focuses on the WWE because it's difficult for him to focus on the economy and creating jobs.
