RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Republican lieutenant governor hopefuls Sue Lowden and Mark Hutchison traded jabs over the federal health care law and campaign debt in a feisty televised debate.

Lowden, a casino owner and former state senator who lost the 2010 GOP U.S. Senate primary, deflected criticism of $600,000 in campaign debt, saying she has submitted a repayment plan with the Federal Election Commission.

She says Hutchison has made it a political issue.

Hutchison, a state senator who represented Nevada in a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act, defended his votes implementing it.

He says after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law, he agreed with Gov. Brian Sandoval's plan for Nevada to set up its own health insurance exchange.

The taped debate aired Tuesday on "Nevada Newsmakers."
