Incumbent Republican Senator Jim Bunning faced Democrat Dan Mongiardo at a debate hosted by WKYT-TV and moderated by Bill Bryant. Senator Bunning was scheduled to appear in Lexington, but took part in the debate by satellite from the Republican National Committee Headquarters after claiming that Senate votes prevented him from attending the debate. Mr. Mongiardo was in the WKYT-TV studios in Lexington. The candidates fielded questions about a variety of domestic and foreign policy issues and spoke about the campaign and their respective advertisements. Senator Bunning apologized to Mr. Mongiardo, an Italian-American, for comparing his appearance to that of Saddam Hussein’s sons.

Senator Jim Bunning is seeking his second term in office. He was elected in 1998 with 50% of the vote and is the first player elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame to serve in Congress. Daniel Mongiardo was elected to the Kentucky Senate in 2001. Dr. Mongiardo is an otolaryngologist. close
