The televised debate in the 116th Assembly District race got a little heated at times on Monday.

The event, which aired on 7 News, featured incumbent Democrat Addie Russell and Republican challenger John Byrne.

The two clashed repeatedly throughout the debate, trading barbs from Russell’s track record in office to Bryne’s overall qualifications for the job.

Russell beat Byrne by less than 100 votes for the seat back in 2014.
