Two Republican state senators fighting for their political lives decried the campaign tactics of their Democratic opponents in brief debates recorded this morning and scheduled to be broadcast tonight.
Sens. Bob Beers, R-Las Vegas, described Democrat Allison Copening as a public relations professional skilled at spin and not to be believed, while Copening claimed Beers is “notorious for making up statistics.”
Sen. Joe Heck, R-Henderson, said Democrat Shirley Breeden was hiding behind “mailers full of accusations,” while Breeden, who maintained she has nothing to do with the aggressive mail campaign her party is funding, said Heck must answer for his record.
The 15-minute question-and-answer sessions are scheduled to air at 9 p.m. on Vegas PBS, Channel 10.
