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.
