McConnell Proposes Lincoln-Douglas Style Debates

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), "fresh off his primary win against challenger Matt Bevin, is challenging Democratic nominee Alison Lundergan Grimes to three debates," Sam Youngman reports.

The invitation: "In order to present our views fairly and without interpretation by traditional media filters, I believe we should participate in three traditional Lincoln-Douglas style debates moderated only by a single timekeeper/moderator. By conducting these debates without an audience, without props and without notes, it will allow for an unvarnished exchange of views for Kentuckians to evaluate."
