Glassman said that while he supports securing the border, it won't work unless there is a way for peopl to cross legally for work. And he backed a path to citizenship for those already here, saying they'd have to submit to background checks, learn English, pay a fine and go to the back of the line.
He dogged McCain for missing Senate votes while he was running for president and for shifting positions on key policy matters.
The senior senator dismissed the remarks as "biased."
Glassman said his own campaign "is about having someone who will work with everyone to find solutions--not just serve as a partisan battering ram trying to accomplish nothing except self-aggrandizement and furthering their political future."
McCain, with few exceptions, ignored Glassman's attempts at eye contact as well as his verbal jabs, even when the Democrat directly challenged him to more debates, saying it was "disrespectful" to voters to limit his appearance to 60 minutes in exchange for a six-year term.
