Economy takes center stage at Colorado Senate debate

(CNN) - Candidates in the upcoming Colorado Senate election faced off Saturday in a televised debate, sparring on everything from abortion to the war in Afghanistan, but focusing on jobs and the economy.

Republican Ken Buck, a conservative backed by the Tea Party movement, is challenging Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.

The contest is close and one of the most hotly-debated races in the nation. The two men exchanged arguments for an hour in a debate aired by KCNC, which is not a CNN affiliate.

    If State A cuts income taxes for corporations, it DOES NOT create a job. It might encourage a company already doing business in State B to relocate to State A.

    Good for 1 state, bad for another. The NET result on American unemployment is ZERO.
