Republican candidate for Virginia's US Senate seat, former US Sen. George Allen, stands by his wife, Susan, as he prepares to debate Democratic challenger Timothy M. Kaine on Oct. 8, 2012. With Election Day nearing, congressional candidates in both parties are avoiding answering questions that could alienate critical voter groups. Allen, for instance, won’t tell you how he feels about a law requiring Virginia women seeking abortions to have abdominal ultrasounds.
