This week on Capitol Chat: a closer look at Douglas versus Cooperrider Ky. Senate GOP contest

LRC Public Information / Cooperrider for Kentucky Senate Committee

Early voting gets underway Thursday in Kentucky and next Tuesday the lion’s share of Republicans and Democrats will go to the polls to select their candidates for the general election in the fall.

This week on Capitol Chat the Kentucky Gazette's Laura Cullen Glasscock shines the spotlight on what she says is one of the most expensive primary races for a seat in the Kentucky Senate; pitting an establishment candidate against a maverick outsider. We follow the money being raised and spent in the race between incumbent Donald Douglas and business owner Andrew Cooperrider.
