FRANKFORT — Republican Rand Paul and Democrat Jack Conway have committed to three political debates leading up to Kentucky’s U.S. Senate election.
The candidates are negotiating for additional debates.
So far, they have agreed to debate in Covington Oct. 11, in Paducah Oct. 14 and in Lexington at a statewide appearance on Kentucky Educational Television Oct. 25.
Paul campaign manager Jesse Benton said he is trying to arrange a nationally televised debate Oct. 3 on “Fox News” with Chris Wallace and additional in-state debates in Bowling Green and Louisville.
Conway spokesman John Collins said his campaign will agree to the Fox News debate only if Paul will agree to face off on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
