Final debate shows Bills, Klobuchar far apart


ST. PAUL -- If the final Minnesota U.S. Senate debate did nothing else, it showed the political distance between the two candidates.

Republican challenger Kurt Bills added distance between his views and those of U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar Sunday night in their last face-to-face meeting of the campaign.

Neither candidate brought up new issues, but the hour-long debate emphasized their differences.
