Tennessee governor candidates remain cordial in final…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Democrat Karl Dean and Republican Bill Lee avoided throwing bombs and held back from taking swipes at each other during Tennessee’s third and final gubernatorial debate.

Instead, the two top candidates on Friday once again outlined their positions while at Belmont University in Nashville by remaining cordial and rarely mentioning their opponent while responding to issues such as Medicaid expansion, the death penalty and education funding.

Both of the candidates came out in favor of maintaining Tennessee’s death penalty, agreeing they would follow the law if elected governor.

Tennessee’s capital punishment has been in the national spotlight since death row inmate Edmund Zagorski requested to use the electric chair for his execution. Tennessee is just one of nine states to allow such execution methods.
