Agriculture Commissioner Candidates Meet in First Debate

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Three candidates for Kentucky's agriculture commissioner appeared on a Kentucky Educational Television debate.

Democrats David Neville and David Williams appeared together in one debate last night.

Williams said there were too many rules and regulations in farming. Williams said he entered the race to protect the environment and would support having automobiles and other motor vehicles run on natural gas.

Candidate Donald Stosberg said that as Kentucky farmers diversify away from tobacco production, the state should look to develop more outlets such as grape and goat farming.

Incumbent commissioner Richie Farmer did not participate in the debate.
