Primary 2008: The Candidates
In 2008, Kentuckians got the rare opportunity to vote in a presidential primary while one party’s candidate was still undecided. The primary ballot also featured a U.S. Senate race, including contested primaries in both the Republican and Democratic parties, and six U.S. House races, four of which included contested primaries.
KET invited all candidates whose names appeared on the ballot in contested U.S. House and Senate primaries to participate in a series of forums. The forums, moderated by Kentucky Tonight host Bill Goodman and featuring questions from journalists from around the state, are archived for online viewing. Click on a highlighted title in the list below to watch that video.
