Colorado Senate candidates clash on energy

The Associated Press

DENVER (AP) Democratic Sen. Mark Udall says a carbon tax is needed and that the federal health care overhaul has helped Colorado.

Udall took a more forceful tone Monday in his second debate against his Republican challenger, Rep. Cory Gardner.

Udall reiterated his support for a carbon tax to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, saying Colorado is ready to lead on greener energy sources. Gardner pushed Udall to put a price on the appropriate carbon tax, but Udall didn't say.

The two also clashed on the new health care law. Udall said he would vote for it again, while Gardner has repeatedly voted to repeal it. Asked about the newly insured, Gardner said Colorado can't afford the Medicaid expansion it approved.

The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce sponsored the debate.
