In Tuesday’s night election, two men are vying to challenge Democrat Brad Ashford's congressional seat.

They are Chip Maxwell and Don Bacon.

The two have exchanged barbs.

Maxwell attacking bacon on being the establishment candidate, getting money from party loyalists, and getting the big name endorsements.

While Bacon attacked Maxwell on the democratic congressional committee wanting Maxwell to win because he would be the easier candidate for ashford to defeat.

Bacon says his military credentials will help our strategy to get rid of isis.

While Maxwell is focusing on doing something with the national debt.

Both candidates hope they come out on top.

Whoever wins will take on Democrat Brad Ashford in the November election.
