ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) Republican U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann says she's a bipartisan problem solver.

Her challenger, Democrat Jim Graves, says he has private sector experience.

The two candidates for the 6th District met Sunday in their third and final debate at KSTP-TV.

Graves got things started. He says his experience in the private sector makes him a good fit in the conservative district. He says he's a fiscal conservative, who has balanced budgets his entire life.

Bachmann says she brought Democrats and Republicans together to secure congressional approval for a new bridge over the St. Croix River this year.

The pair also discussed federal spending, abortion and the 2010 health care reform law.
