Audio: Lally, Yarmuth Face Off In Rotary Debate

By Sheila AshThe two major party candidates for Kentucky’s Third District congressional seat squared off Thursday at the weekly Downtown Rotary Club meeting.Incumbent Democratic Congressman John Yarmuth and Republican challenger Todd Lally discussed several issues, including jobs, the economy and the Ohio River Bridges Project.In his closing remarks, Lally said Yarmuth should be denied a third term in Washington."I don’t think that John represents our community as a whole, he does represent some people here very well in the third district, but it’s time for a change," he said. Yarmuth defended his work in office. "Over the last four years I have been to two thousand events and meetings in Louisville and that’s with spending half my time in Washington. What I do when I go to these meetings is I listen to my constituents," he said. This was the last meeting between the two candidates before the November 2 election.To hear the entire debate, click on the player below:
