Braxton is also trailing LaRoque in polling from May and September. Braxton answered questions about how to handle the state's impending budget shortfall and did not rule out extending the state's temporary one-cent sales tax.
LaRoque filed a defamation lawsuit against Braxton on October 4, 2010. The lawsuit alleges Braxton sent campaign mailers falsely accusing LaRoque of illegal business activities. The mailers also claim LaRoque stole a man's business and home through a foreclosure filing.
