   LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – It was so heated in the last debate, that they didn't even shake hands at the end and while Monday's debate was more subdued, neither candidate shied away from attacking the other.

Conway: "I do know in Kentucky, that Kentuckiana knows that you don't attack a man's dog and you don't attack a man's horse."
Paul: "But you can attack a man's religion?"
Conway: "I questioned your actions Rand."
Paul: "I guess that's okay right?"
Conway: "I questioned your actions, not your faith."
Paul: "Oh yeah."
   Both Paul and Conway criticized each other on the issues like healthcare, foreign policy, education, medicare, social security and most notably, each other's appearances on national news programs such as  Paul talking to Rachel Maddow about the Civil Rights Act and Conway on Chris Matthews talking about his recent ad about Aqua Buddha.
   Conway says, "I watched on MSNBC 20 of the most painful and embarrassing moments I've ever seen on national cable TV as my opponent questioned the fundamental provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964."
   Paul says, "The 20 most painful minutes on MSNBC were Chris Matthews and Jack when Jack decided he wanted to attack my religion.  And boy was that a squirm fest."
