Heck, Ocegura Trade Campaign Accusations in Debate

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Congressman Joe Heck and challenger John Oceguera are telling Nevada voters they have different approaches to health care, Social Security and partisanship in Washington.

The Republican incumbent and the state Assembly speaker met in a Vegas PBS television studio Tuesday for a 30-minute taped debate that offered the first chance for the candidates to personally trade accusations about their campaign ads.

Heck accused Oceguera several times of making "blatantly false" allegations about Heck's support for an abortion bill in Congress.

Oceguera said he stands behind the ad.

He accuses Heck of supporting policies that hurt women.

Oceguera called himself the son of a woman who was a victim of domestic violence.
