Election 2006 Candidate Forums

During October 2006, KET produced a series of forums with candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives in Kentucky’s six congressional districts. All candidates whose names appeared on the ballot were invited to participate.

Kentucky Tonight host Bill Goodman moderated the forums, in which journalists from media outlets in the district asked questions of the candidates. When more than one candidate participated, candidates were also given a chance to ask questions of one another.

The forums are archived online in Windows Media® and RealVideo® format. Click on a highlighted title to watch the video.
