Atlanta, Georgia(AP) --

The three candidates for governor clashed in the first televised debate of the campaign sponsored by student government groups from five Georgia universities.

Nathan Deal faced questions about his finances including one
from Democrat Roy Barnes, who questioned how his Republican
opponent had managed to pay very low federal income taxes in 2006
and 2007.

Deal said he's "paid the taxes that law required of me" and
argued his personal financial woes would in now way impact his
ability to run the state.

Barnes refused to say whether he would again cast a ballot for
President Barack Obama, saying he would need to see who else was
running.

Libertarian John Monds stuck to a message of limited government.
