After Trump, clear differences for Ross, Burr in Senate race


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Republican incumbent Richard Burr and Democratic rival Deborah Ross want North Carolina voters to know about clear differences between them on issues in the final weeks of their campaigns for U.S. Senate.

In their recent debate, they disagreed over whether to fix or replace the federal health care overhaul. They disagree on what to do regarding citizenship for immigrants who are in the country illegally. They also differ on the economic impact of the state law known as House Bill 2.

Ross also wants voters to keep viewing those differences through the filter of Burr’s support for Donald Trump for president as proof the two-term senator lacks proper judgment. Burr says repeated questions about Trump are a diversion from the Senate campaign voters want.
