Paul Will Debate Conway On KET

by Gabe Bullard on October 22, 2010

From Kentucky Public Radio’s Alan Lytle

Kentucky Republican US Senate candidate Rand Paul says he will keep his commitment to debate Democrat Jack Conway on statewide television Monday night.  Paul, a Tea Party favorite, had threatened to pull out of the KET appearance in light of Conway’s much talked about “Aqua Buddha” ad which he calls “despicable, odious, and dangerous.”  At a press opportunity this afternoon in Lexington, the Bowling Green eye surgeon read from a prepared script and declined to take follow up questions from the media.

“While I remain disappointed that my opponent continues these personal attacks, I do respect the voters of Kentucky, and therefore will participate in Monday’s final debate,” he said. “Kentuckians deserve another opportunity to understand the very real differences between Jack Conway and myself,” he said.

Paul says his campaign staff has collected “damaging information” about the Kentucky Attorney General but has instructed them not to use it. A poll released this week by the Lexington Herald Leader, WKYT TV in Lexington, and WAVE TV in Louisville, shows Paul leading the race by 5 points.

The KET debate will be simulcast on WFPL.

A businessman is drowning in the ocean.
Stimulus : we should rescue him immediately.
Power first : Nope ! How do we pay for it. Just let him go under much like Lehman Brothers.
Stimulus : He is dying right now.
Power first : Nope ! You can’t save his money bag.
Stimulus ( clock is ticking ) : : We can do everything.
Power first : We are serious about jobs. Where are jobs ?

I hope people in Kentucky realize how little the establishment thinks of their intelligence… running these types of condescending ads. Just know.. Dr. Paul is being continuously attacked by pundits from the left and the right, because he represents the real grassroots face of the teaparty movement… not the Beck/Palin synthetic brand being sold to us by Fox News and the infallible Left.
