Governor Candidates Square Off

By  | 

Fresh off primary victories, Nevada's gubernatorial candidates wasted no time in attacking each other.

The Democrat's pick for governor, state Senate Minority Leader Dina Titus held a news conference to "highlight the differences" between her and Republican Nominee, Congressman Jim Gibbons.

She criticized Gibbons' voting record on the environment, education and ethics, and challenged him to a debate in the next couple of weeks.

The Gibbons campaign returned fire by calling Titus a “tax-and-spender” and an “urban liberal”.

Gibbons' campaign says their candidate would debate Titus in Las Vegas, Reno and Elko, but would not commit to an early face-off.
