Neither Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., or her Republican challenger Kurt Bills brought up new issues in the last debate of Minnesota's U.S. Senate race Sunday night at St. Paul's Fitzgerald Theater, the South Washington County Bulletin reported.
Bills said he supports a tax where everyone pays the same percentage, and said his opponent shows no leadership in the Senate and government gets in the way of middle-class Americans, the publication reported. Klobuchar, on the other hand, said she wanted to keep middle-class tax cuts in place and wants to raise taxes on the rich.
This was the fourth and final debate between Klobuchar and Bills before Election Day.
The most recent Star Tribune Minnesota Poll shows 65 percent of likely voters favor Klobuchar while 22 percent back Bills.
Late last month, Kurt Bills rolled out his first television ad accusing Klobuchar of trying to cover up the fraud crimes of businessman Tom Petters. Klobuchar’s re-election campaign says the allegations are “inaccurate.”
