GOP Senate Candidates to Debate in Norfolk

Republican candidates for U.S. Senate seem to be turning their focus more to platforms and current events than personal attacks.

Four Republicans seeking the GOP nomination participated in a
debate Wednesday night in Norfolk. Participating were state Attorney General Jon Bruning; state Treasurer Don Stenberg; state Sen. Deb Fischer; and investment adviser Pat Flynn.

The candidates all declared their support for stand-your-ground
self-defense laws, federal spending reductions and repeal of the
national health care reform law.

In a debate last week, the tone turned personal when Bruning
questioned why Stenberg requested to "follow" Bruning's 14-year-old daughter on the social media website Twitter.

Stenberg responded that he doesn't handle his own Twitter account and that his campaign site has more than 1,700 followers.
