Lexington, KY – Kentucky's U.S. Senate candidates are set for their final television debate tonight in a race that's become bitter and personal. Republican Rand Paul and Democrat Jack Conway will square off in Lexington at an event to be broadcast statewide on Kentucky Educational Television. It will be the fifth debate of their fall campaign.
Paul considered backing out of the final debate in response to a Conway attack ad, but the Republican announced late last week that he will go ahead with the final head-to-head meeting.
The two rivals are vying for the seat of GOP Sen. Jim Bunning, who is retiring.
