Local Debate Gets Physical In California [VIDEO]

Things got physical during a debate between two California House Democrats Thursday night.

FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports:

Audio clip:

(sound from the debate) At times, it sounded more like a sporting event than a Congressional debate. Redistricting and California election law pit 15-term Democrat Howard Berman and eight-term Democrat Brad Sherman against each other for the 30th Congressional District. And when each questioned the other's honesty, it got physical:

(debate) .. "You want to get into this..."

In a video released by the Berman campaign, Sherman walked up to Berman, grabbed him, and said "You want to get into this." A Sheriff's Deputy got onto the stage to make sure the men separated. In a statement, Sherman said the debate "was not conducted at the highest level" and he regrets his part.
