Campaign 2020}

Discussion with Kentucky U.S. Senate Democratic Candidates

Three Democrats vying for the party nomination to run against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in the 2020 election joined a special edition of Kentucky Educational Television’s “Kentucky Tonight” program to discuss their campaign platforms and their reasons for running. Much of the program focused on the nationwide protests that erupted following the death of George Floyd, a Black man, while in police custody in Minneapolis. The candidates talked about the response to protests in Louisville, Kentucky’s largest city, and about ways they would address racism if elected to the Senate. They also fielded questions on a variety of topics including abortion, the coronavirus response, and gun rights, many of them submitted by viewers of the program.
