MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont's two major gubernatorial candidates have entered the home stretch of a bitter fight by accusing one another of low blows in their 13th and final debate.

Democrat Peter Shumlin and Republican Brian Dubie accused one another Saturday of being dishonest in campaign ads and earlier debates in characterizing one another's positions.

On the issues, both say they would resist calls to dip into the state's rainy day fund to fill a budget gap estimated at $112 million for the coming year. Dubie says he would support state police getting stun guns, while Shumlin says he hasn't made up his mind on that issue.

They are seeking to succeed Republican Gov. Jim Douglas, who is not seeking a fifth term.
