Nation takes notice of Kentucky Senate race

April 30, 2010

National news outlets have been coming to the Bluegrass State over the past several months catching up with the Kentucky Senate race, which has attracted attention on a number of fronts.

For one, it’s a race to replace Republican Jim Bunning, who is no stranger to media attention. The race has also generated buzz as Republican frontrunner Rand Paul of Bowling Green has tapped into much of the Tea Party support that media types, myself included, are so fascinated with.

A national audience will get a closer look t the candidates in this race over the next two Mondays.

KET host Bill Goodman will be interviewing the Democrats on Monday and then the Republicans on May 10, and C-SPAN will also be carrying the broadcast. It will no doubt make for a good view, so be sure to check it out.

Here’s the info from KET –

KET’s Kentucky Tonight discussions with U.S. Senate primary candidates are scheduled to air nationally on C-SPAN –– a sign of national interest in the Kentucky Senate races.

First, host Bill Goodman talks with Democratic candidates James Buckmaster, Jack Conway, Daniel Mongiardo, Darlene F. Price and Maurice M. Sweeney. The program airs live on C-SPAN, KET and on Monday, May 3 at 8/7 p.m. CT.

Then, on May 10, Goodman welcomes Republican candidates C.M. “Trey” Grayson, Gurley L. Martin, Rand Paul, Jon J. Scribner and John Stephenson.
