Election 2008 Candidate Forums

During September and October 2008, KET produced a series of forums with candidates in six U.S. House races and a U.S. Senate race. KET invited all of the candidates whose names would appear on the ballot in these congressional races to participate.

The forums were moderated by KET’s Bill Goodman, and candidates answered questions from a panel of journalists.

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