AG Nominees Conway, Lee Stress Differences In Televised Debate

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's attorney general candidates
stressed their philosophical differences on topics ranging from
business regulation to the state's bulging prison population during
a televised, and somewhat contentious, debate Monday night.

Republican Stan Lee, a state representative and a Lexington
lawyer, is facing Democrat Jack Conway, a Louisville lawyer, in the
Nov. 6 election to be Kentucky's top law enforcement official.

"We have a clear difference in this race," Lee said during the
debate broadcast statewide on Kentucky Educational Television.

Lee called Conway an "ultraliberal" and stressed his own
conservative credentials while pointing out his opposition to
abortion rights and his support for businesses.

Conway, meanwhile, said he supported issues that were not
exclusively Democratic or Republican but "common sense." Conway
also questioned whether Lee would follow the law or have his own
agenda in office.

"That's a problem going forward I think," Conway said.
