The race for Colorado’s 7th Congressional district has gone hands-on.

The Denver Post’s Lynn Bartels reported Tuesday that Democratic House candidate Ed Perlmutter swatted away the hand of his Republican opponent Ryan Fraizer during a televised debate Saturday. The two were pointing fingers over Obamacare and Mr. Perlmutter batted away Mr. Fraizer’s fingers following a frustrating question over his knowledge of the unpopular legislation.

Mr. Fraizer grinned after the slap and asked Mr. Perlmutter not to hit him again.
