GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado says tax cuts for the middle class should be extended, but he disagreed with his Republican challenger over tax cuts for the rich in the first debate.

Republican Ken Buck insisted during the Saturday night debate that tax cuts scheduled to expire in January should be extended even for the wealthy.

The first debate between the two candidates was largely cordial, although the two bickered near the end over an attack ad being aired by Bennet.

The ad uses snippets of Buck's remarks to describe him as too conservative. Buck and several news organizations have described it as misleading.

Bennet defended the ad and said he wouldn't take it off the air.
