Murray State and Centre Propose Senate Debates

Murray State and Centre College have added their names to a list of hopeful Kentucky U.S. Senate Debate hosts.

Senator Mitch McConnell and his opponent Allison Lundergan Grimes both agree they should debate but they have yet to agree on a number of debates or locations. MSU Student Government’s Daniel Hughes and Michael Dobbs cited the region’s economic needs, and distance from the state’s central metropolitan area in their appeal to the candidates. Centre President John Roush has proposed to host a debate with AARP and a media partner at the college’s Norton Center for the Arts. Neither school has received a commitment. The University of Kentucky is also seeking to host a Senatorial Debate.
