Yarmuth and Wicker Joust Over Health Care, Obama in WFPL Debate

In Kentucky's Third Congressional District race, Democratic incumbent John Yarmuth and Republican challenger Brooks Wicker met for an in-depth debate on WFPL.The two candidates are scheduled to make a number of appearances this week for voters to contrast their differing views, but this was the first publicly broadcasted forum where they discussed the Affordable Care Act, economy and looming fiscal cliff.Both men agreed that sequestration in Congress is not the best way to handle budget cuts to lower the deficit, but there was little consensus between Yarmuth and Wicker on much else.Tune in to Byline this Friday to listen to our debate recap and hear us fact-check the candidates.
