The stage is set. On Dec. 8, we’ll go to the polls and choose a new state senator to represent the 14th Senatorial district. The Republican party has chosen State Rep. Jimmy Higdon, R-Lebanon, as its candidate for the special election. The Democratic party selected former state representative Jodie Haydon, Bardstown, as its choice.
Both candidates will take place in two debates, one set for Wednesday, Nov. 11, from 7-8:30 p.m., and the other on Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 7-8 p.m.
To help conduct these debates, members of the newspapers in the areas served by the 14th Senatorial district will be on hand to ask questions, and we want to hear from you.
