Pot to Kettle: ''You're Black'' - Taft attacks Hagan for flip-flopping on CCW

The first live television debate between the major candidates for Ohio governor was short on showmanship but long on political differences.

Near the end of the debate, each candidate was allowed to ask a question of the other. Each used the opportunity to make a short speech before getting to the question. Taft went first, accusing Hagan of flip-flopping on a number of issues, "including concealed weapons".

Both candidates said they would not support a concealed weapons bill without provisions for strict background checks, training and the support of law enforcement. Hagan insisted his position has been consistent, that he has always opposed the current bill in the General Assembly.
