They covered many issues, from lessons learned from the 38 Studios debacle to whether they'd support tolls on Interstate 95, but the debate didn't break a lot of new ground.

The Republican candidates, Cranston Mayor Allan Fung and businessman Ken Block, taped a debate earlier Wednesday and tried to highlight policy and leadership style differences. It will air Friday.

The debates were co-sponsored by the station and Rhode Island Public Radio.
