On July 17, Centre College, AARP and WAVE3 News in Louisville proposed hosting a debate between Kentucky's two leading candidates for the U.S. Senate race, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sec. Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Since then, Centre College says it has worked tirelessly with campaign representatives to put in place a format for a civilized, meaningful discussion between the candidates to learn more about them and their aspirations for serving the Commonwealth and to get past the carefully rehearsed, contrived, and sometimes mean-spirited advertising that increasingly characterizes political campaigns.

As the clock ticks closer and closer to the proposed date of Sept. 3, Centre College says it still waiting for an answer. 

Centre College says it applauds the recent announcement that the candidates will appear on KET's "Kentucky Tonight" on Oct. 13 with Bill Goodman. Nonetheless, the college says that interaction will not be the same as what might occur at Centre.

Less than two weeks from the date the college proposed, Centre officials still wait for an answer and expect one soon. 

Centre College  is encouraging Kentuckians to use #CentreDebate14  to post questions they'd want the candidates to address.
