With 1 week left, GOP candidates have prime time TV debate

GOP Debate

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s treacherous Republican primary for governor, marred by abuse allegations and gobs of outside spending, gets a statewide TV audience Monday night as the four candidates go head to head in prime time a little more than one week before the election.

Matt Bevin, James Comer, Hal Heiner and Will T. Scott are scheduled to appear together on the "Kentucky Tonight" program on Kentucky Educational Television starting at 8 p.m. Host Bill Goodman will pepper the candidates with questions in a roundtable-style discussion format for about an hour.

Comer will likely have to answer questions about allegations from his former college girlfriend that he abused her while Heiner could have to talk about whether his campaign has coordinated with a nonprofit group that has paid for negative TV ads.

Both men deny the accusations.
