All six Republican candidates vying for U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe's, R-Maine, seat tonight were asked how they feel about the "purported hyper-partisanship" that Snowe says prompted her to abandon her re-election bid.
Below are the responses the candidates offered during a forum held in Brunswick. Note the varying answers, all of which seemed appropriate on a night when the candidates appeared to make concerted eforts to seperate themselves from one another.
Please excuse the shaky camera work. Also, Deb Plowman's response was cut off because of a depleted iPhone battery.
