FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear is scheduled for a rare debate with two well-spoken Kentucky politicians who want to take his job in the Nov. 8 election.
The 90-minute faceoff, being broadcast statewide on Kentucky Educational Television beginning at 8 p.m. Monday, will give Republican David Williams and independent Gatewood Galbraith a final opportunity to confront Beshear in person.
It will be only the second debate between the three, and it comes with just more than a week remaining before Election Day.
University of Louisville political scientist Laurie Rhodebeck said a public television debate isn't likely to sway a race in which polls have Beshear leading by 30 percentage points.
