Three candidates running for South Dakota’s open U.S. Senate seat hammered Mike Rounds on EB-5 in Thursday night’s debate. 

The federal immigration program was the first question in the debate; it’s been a major issue in this year’s race.
 
Rick Weiland, Larry Pressler and Gordon Howie all criticized Mike Rounds for his role in alleged corruption, embezzlement and fraud in the program.
 
Rounds says EB-5 has been good for South Dakota.

Social Security was also point of contention between the four candidates in the Senate Debate.
 
Each candidate was asked what they would do to protect the federal program.
