In front of a standing room only, lively crowd of approximately 2,500 people, candidates for Kansas Governor and U.S. Senate debated Saturday at the Kansas State Fair on Saturday.
Republican Governor Sam Brownback and his Democratic challenger, Paul Davis, laid out their positions on education, taxes, Medicaid expansion and renewable energy during their first debate. After that, Republican Senator Pat Roberts debated 45-year-old businessman Greg Orman, who is mounting an independent campaign for the seat in a race that is attracting national attention.
Both of the debates will be rebroadcast on Newsradio 1150 KSAL this week. The governor’s debate will air from 4:00 – 5:00 Tuesday afternoon, while the senate debate will air from 4:00 – 5:00 on Wednesday afternoon.
Both debates are also available online.
