In debate, Garnett calls Suthers ‘attorney general for the tea party’
Candidate debates can be boring. Once in awhile, though, the fur flies.
That was the case yesterday in Loveland, according to the Reporter Herald, when the attorney general candidates squared off. Democratic challenger Stan Garnett accused Republican incumbent John Suthers of abusing the public trust by filing briefs in other states in opposition to health care reform.
“This is a great example of John Suthers being the attorney general for the tea party,” Garnett said.
Garnett also attacked Suthers for not being a strong enough advocate for consumers and for taking money from the payday loan industry.
Suthers countered by saying Garnet takes money from attorneys. “It’s business versus trial lawyers, and you guys can determine which makes you more uncomfortable,” Suthers said.
