Kevin Wade: Career politicians can't change Washington

Kevin Wade offered several attacks on Washington and Carper. "Career politicians have done more to secure their own political prospects than they have to secure the future fortunes of American and Delaware families," Wade said. "Washington won't change until we change the people in Washington."

Tom Carper: Rumors about my health are "baloney" and "hogwash"

Alex Pires continued his assault on Tom Carper, asserting that the incumbent had a hidden illness he wasn't disclosing to voters.

Carper responded by pointing to a doctor's letter posted to his website 2 days before stating that the senator's "overall health is good."

The moderator initiated the conversation, asking Pires to explain why he would question the senator's health, after Pires first raised the health issue in July. "If Tom Carper is emotionally and mentally healthy, he would end it by putting his health records out," Pires said, saying the senator has had trouble focusing during public events and suggesting Carper would step down soon after re-election.

Carper responded, calling the the issue "baloney," adding that "we'd do well to focus on the health of our economy and finances."

In an interview following the debate, Carper said rumors that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's or a form of dementia is "hogwash. It's nonsense."
