(BOSTON, Mass - AP) - Growing tension between Democrat Deval Patrick and Republican Kerry Healey bubbled over at a debate in Faneuil Hall.

In one of the more contentious moments Patrick turned to Healey and told her to "come off that high horse of yours sometime."

The exchange came during a discussion of Healey's TV ads criticizing Patrick's one-time advocacy of Benjamin LaGuer, a convicted rapist seeking parole.

Healey continued to chide Patrick for using complimentary terms to describe LaGuer in letters he wrote before DNA evidence confirmed LaGuer's guilt.

Patrick told Healey he didn't need to be lectured about crime.
