Third UMP debate

The third and final UMP debate was held today in Bordeaux. Sarkozy apparently continued to say that he will not step back from his duties if elected:
"I will not betray, I will not lie, I will not move back. What I will say, I will do. It is an engagement of honor. The policy also needs honor."

Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie used the debate as an opportunity to chastise the Socialists for wanting to hand over some military spending for a more integrated European defense, saying that lowering defense appropriations would be "criminal" and "irresponsible".

I'll add more info as it becomes available.
