Columbia's mayoral candidates turned their weapons on each other Monday night, unleashing a barrage of budget questions that left little doubt what the focus of this race has become.

After asking questions about job creation, public safety and attracting and retaining young professionals, moderators of the Free Times/Columbia Opportunity Resource debate unleashed the candidates to ask questions of each other.

Steve Benjamin asked Kirkman Finlay how, as a sitting city councilman, he could vote for a budget that cut public safety.

Finlay and Steve Morrison challenged Benjamin on his plan to restore $9 million to the police and fire department budgets.
