The Republican seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton went on the attack against her in their first debate, accusing her of putting presidential aspirations ahead of voters. "I'm the only one standing on this platform who wants to be a United States senator for New York for the next six years," said John Spencer, a former Yonkers mayor, in his opening remarks Friday night. Clinton acknowledged that she has thought about running for the presidency in 2008, but said she is committed to running for re-election to the Senate. Elections are November 7 for 33 Senate seats, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and many state and local offices. "As you might guess, I've been asked that a few times before," she said of her possible White House aspirations. "I am focused on this election. I am focused on my work in the Senate. Obviously, people are talking about whether I will or should be running for president, and I'm flattered by that."
