WAVE 3 News Editorial - July 17, 2014: Senatorial Candidate Debate

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Senate race in the Commonwealth this year is one of the most important in the nation.

We encourage candidates Mitch McConnell and Alison Grimes to accept several of the 100 plus proposals for debates.

WAVE 3 News proposed one many months ago and we have now teamed with Centre College, AARP and several media partners throughout the Commonwealth, including our radio partner, WHAS, to offer another option for the candidates. A primetime hour just after Labor Day outside the Senate calendar seems an appropriate allocation of time for the candidates to discuss with us their vision for navigating our country through the enormous challenges and opportunities before us.

A candidate for any office should engage in substantive dialogue with voters to give us the insights needed to make an informed selection. We believe this is a moral imperative and we hope the candidates feel the same way.
