Democratic U.S. Rep. Chris Pappas and Republican challenger Matt Mowers attacked each other in a debate over how best to provide coronavirus relief, tackle police reform and offer New Hampshire residents affordable health care.

The two routinely talked over each other in Wednesday's debate as they discussed providing economic help to small businesses and other issues.

They also disagreed over how to address police reforms after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and on the Affordable Care Act.

Pappas wants to shore it up.

Mowers has said he wanted to repeal and replace it and said Wednesday that he would support expanding health care access.
