DescriptionMemo to candidates for U.S. Senate: You have to get past the primary election first.

That message seemed largely lost Thursday. Rather than attacking their primary opponents, candidates saved their sharpest elbows for the opposite party at an evening debate at the University of Denver.

Democrat and state Attorney General Ken Salazar was especially targeted, shouldering accusations from Republican challengers Pete Coors and Bob Schaffer of being in the pocket of trial lawyers.

Salazar responded by saying Coors and Schaffer are on the side of large drug manufacturers.

Democrat Mike Miles tried to stay above the fray, and drew a laugh by noting, "For the first time, I'm happy to have not been supported by any big money."
