Heated debate between Wisconsin Senate candidates

(CNN) - The candidates for Senate in Wisconsin stuck to their talking points in an animated debate Monday night. Republican Ron Johnson blamed the three-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold for what he said were the failures of Washington, and Feingold said Johnson offered no solutions to the problems.

"He doesn't have any answer, he doesn't have any plan, he just wants to say we've got all this debt and all these problems, but he gives you absolutely no idea of what he would do about it," Feingold said. "It's not the responsibility you need from a U.S. Senator."

Preston on Politics: Paladino takes GOP off course

Washington (CNN) – Bad timing: Carl Paladino's critical comments about gays couldn't have come at a worse time for him and other Republicans. Paladino is down double-digits to his Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo in the New York governor's race, but beyond his own race why is this important? With 22 days to go until Election Day, GOP candidates in the Empire State and across the country would prefer to be talking about other things such as their plan to revive the economy – not Paladino's remarks.
