CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Two Democratic candidates debating the issues as they seek their party’s nomination to run for U.S. Senate faced off Thursday in Riverton.

Candidates Charlie Hardy of Cheyenne, a former priest, and Rex Wilde, of Cheyenne, a worker with a contracting company, agreed with each other on many issues, including that health care should be available to everyone.

Hardy said he doesn’t believe the Senate should change its rules to rein in the use of filibusters, a tactic in which members can talk for hours to prevent a vote. He says believe people shouldn’t cut off the right of others to discuss the issues.

Wilde said he would be willing to limit filibusters. He says people in Congress have totally lost touch with the working class in the country.
