COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and Attorney General Jack Conway challenged his primary opponent Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo to return housing stipends he received from the state.

During a debate Friday in Covington sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Mongiardo said that he and his wife temporarily lived with his in-laws in 2008 and then again this winter.

The Kentucky Enquirer reported that Mongiardo wouldn't say whether he'll return any part of the $30,000 annual stipend, but he called Conway "desperate" and accused him of running a shoddy campaign.

Conway and Mongiardo lead the field of five Democrats vying for their party's nomination on May 18.
