DescriptionThe only scheduled debate between U.S. Rep. Ken Buck and Democratic challenger Ike McCorkle ended on an unusual note Friday night when Buck accused McCorkle of fundraising with a violent leftist and McCorkle shouted about a T-shirt Buck wore, as the congressman stood up and walked out.

During closing remarks of the debate, held at an American Legion hall in Elizabeth, Buck asked McCorkle why he held a fundraiser in September with a progressive activist in Weld County. This week video of the activist talking about the need for left-wing militancy was released by Project Veritas, a conservative group known for secretly recording subjects and selectively editing videos.

“I hope you’ll give every penny back that you earned in that fundraiser with somebody of this mentality,” said Buck, who is chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. “This is absolutely disgraceful that the Democrat Party and a candidate running for office in the 4th Congressional District would do something like this.”
