Jack Conway's Democratic gubernatorial campaign released Monday a schedule of six forums where Conway or his running mate, state Rep. Sannie Overly of Paris, plan to appear alongside their Republican opponents, Louisville financier Matt Bevin and Jenean Hampton.
"I look forward to a serious discussion with my opponent about the issues that matter most to Kentucky families," Conway, finishing his second term as attorney general, said in a statement.
Ben Hartman, Bevin's campaign manager, said: "We have agreed to some (of the forums) and are in the process of scheduling the rest. As Matt has said numerous times since Election Day, we would like as many debates as possible."
The schedule offered by Conway is:
June 19: Kentucky County Judge-Executive Association summer conference at the Galt House in Louisville.
July 23: Kentucky Farm Bureau "Measure the Candidates" forum at KFB state headquarters in Louisville.
Oct. 6: Centre College in Danville. This will be broadcast on television.
