Political Foes to Offer Spin at VP Debate http://wkms.org/post/two-ky-political-foes-offer-spin-vp-debate <p>Two former Kentucky political foes are offering spin at the vice presidential debate Thursday in Danville. Republican Sen. Rand Paul and Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway will be among the pundits speaking to reporters covering the matchup between Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan. Conway and Paul faced off in the heated 2010 Senate race. Paul won, and Conway was elected for a second term as Kentucky’s attorney general.</p> Thu, 11 Oct 2012 12:53:26 +0000 Whitney Jones & The Associated Press 23093 at http://wkms.org Two Ky. Political Foes to Offer Spin at VP Debate Danville Prepares for VP Debate http://wkms.org/post/danville-prepares-vp-debate <p>Politicians are not the only ones hoping for a boost from Wednesday’s vice presidential debate. Danville is preparing for visitors and recognition too. The city of about 16,000 has repaved streets, planted flowers and erected new signs all in preparation for the debate and the many visitors that it will bring into town. One of the local bars has even created cocktails bearing Joe Biden and Paul Ryan’s names. That’s a big change from the last time the debate was held at Danville’s Centre College in 2000, when alcohol sales were banned in the city.

The most outward signs of this increase include chain-link fences and concrete barriers on the streets surrounding the college. Centre’s Debate Committee Co-chairman Clarence Wyatt says planning this year is much more complex than when the college hosted its first vice presidential debate in 2000. Roads around the campus will be closed starting Tuesday and anyone attending the event should expect their bags to be searched.
