Election 2000: The Candidates
In a presidential election year, its easy for other statewide political races to be overshadowed. But key congressional races took place in Kentucky in 2000, with candidates vying for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives from each of the states six congressional districts.
KET produced a forum for each of the six districts. All candidates who appeared on the Kentucky Secretary of States 2000 General Election Candidates list were invited to take part; the list below indicates which candidates participated. The programs were moderated by Bill Goodman of KETs Kentucky Tonight.
