MONTPELIER Vermont Vermont's gubernatorial candidates Peter Shumlin and Randy Brock engaged in a feisty debate on Wednesday night, interrupting each other and challenging the other's statements.[1]

The format for the debate began and ended with questions posed by a panel, but the middle section allowed the two candidates to question each other. Democratic incumbent Shumlin used his questions to try to show Brock as someone who is out of touch with lower and middle-income families.[1]

Meanwhile former state senator Brock posed questions with the intent of raising ethics questions about the governor and his relation with his campaign contributors.[1]

The two candidates will meet for their final back-to-back debates on October 23 and 24.[1]
