The second congressional district candidates took the stage today for their final debate.

Incumbent Brad Ashford and retired general don bacon clashed on issues this morning at the Omaha Community playhouse.

The panelists had about one-dozen questions for the duo.

Ashford touted his bipartisan rank while bacon pushed his military experience as a must-need in Washington.

Tensions flared when bacon brought up voting records and Nancy Pelosi.

 Ashford says he has voted with president Obama less than 50-percent of the time and against Nancy Pelosi on major issues like the Iran deal, VA accountability, and closing Guantanamo Bay
