North Dakota's U.S. Senate candidates agree that a bipartisan solution is needed to repair the new federal health care law.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's U.S. Senate candidates agree that a bipartisan solution is needed to repair the new federal health care law.
Republican Rick Berg and Democrat Heidi Heitkamp had their third and final debate Thursday night at a Bismarck middle school.
Heitkamp has said during her campaign she won't be tied to the wishes of national Democratic Party leaders.
Berg says that wasn't true during the debate on the health care law two years ago.
He says Heitkamp held partisan Democratic rallies to support the bill.
Heitkamp says she wasn't in the Senate then.
And she says if Republicans had pushed to repair the law's shortcomings, things would be better now.
Berg wants to repeal the health care law.
Heitkamp says its flaws can be fixed without dumping the bill.
