DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — It was the sharpest, most caustic debate yet for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

On Thursday night in New Hampshire, a fiery Clinton went after Sanders for his suggestions that she is a captive of Wall Street interests. She called on him to end a “very artful smear that you and your campaign are carrying out.”

Sanders didn’t back down. He kept coming back to the millions that Clinton has collected from financial interests in speaking fees and campaign contributions over the decades.

The intensifying jabs and pokes gave voters something to talk about. And they were fresh evidence of how the race for the nomination, once considered a sure bet for Clinton, has tightened in recent weeks.

New Hampshire votes in the nation’s first primary on Tuesday.
