Kentucky voters are about to get their first, and potentially only chance to see a debate between Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. They're set to meet Monday at 7:00 pm for a socially distanced encounter.

The debate will be aired on Gray Television’s Kentucky-based stations. It comes near the end of a big-spending campaign. McConnell is seeking a seventh term and has consistently led in polling. The rivals will debate at WKYT, and the Lexington station took a number of precautions in response to the coronavirus. Kentucky is in the midst of another spike of COVID-19 cases.
