ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -- The candidates for Virginia lieutenant governor have made it clear at a debate that the contrasts between them are sharp.
Democratic state Sen. Ralph Northam noted his support for major bipartisan legislation including tax funding reform and a restaurant smoking ban. He said he's running, among other things, to protect women's reproductive rights and stem discrimination against same-sex couples.
His Republican opponent, Chesapeake pastor E.W. Jackson, attacked new federal health care reforms he calls "Obamacare" and plugged for state subsidies for parents who want to send their children to private schools.
The focus of the 90-minute debate Tuesday night at George Mason University's Arlington campus is on Virginia's economy and state government finances. It is being streamed live by WUSA-TV.
