Senate candidates have one last word

Minnesota's Senate U.S. Senate candidates Norm Coleman, Al Franken and Dean Barkley held their last debate in a theater Sunday according to the Star Tribune.

The Senate candidates discussed allegations and countercharges that threaten to consume the contest in the closing week.

The Pioneer Press reported that Independence Party candidate Dean Barkley was silent for the first ten minutes of the debate as Coleman and Franken debated.

When asked what he thought of the situation facing Coleman and Franken, Barkley said, "Well, I think you know one of the reasons why I'm running."
