The first question dealt with the Oregonian not endorsing either candidate for Senate.


Monica Wehby responded.


"This was the first time I've run a campaign and things have not gone totally perfectly with it.  And a lot of their criticism had to do with that.  I do think what they said about Senator Merkley was accurate though, he doesn't represent the middle class."


The Oregonian criticized Merkley for being too partisan and he responded that as Oregon's Speaker of the House and in the U.S. Senate  he  has worked across party lines to get legislation passed.


Both claimed to fight for the middle class.


It was the main thrust of Merkley's closing statements.


"This election poses a clear choice between two very different views. One that allows the wealthy and people like the Koch brothers to get ahead and one that allows every American to get a fair shot and I'm fighting for the fair shot.  It's been an honor to serve as your Senator.  We've made progress, but we're not gone far enough."


The two debated such issues as healthcare, bringing jobs to rural Oregon, gun rights and legalizing marijuana.
