The Latest: Macron says France deserves better than Le Pen

The Latest on France's presidential election (all times local):

11:25 p.m.

French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron has told far-right rival Marine Le Pen that "France deserves better than you."

The centrist Macron said near the end of a heated one-on-one debate with Le Pen on Wednesday night that he was standing up to her views that marginalize some French residents as "dirty" foreign people.

He added that Le Pen's far-right party "doesn't look like France" while he respects all French voters, including those who cast ballots for her because they "are angry".

Le Pen accused Macron, a former banker and economy minister, of lying down for banks.
