Second Successful VP Debate has State Officials Hoping for Presidential Debate Next Time

After this week's Vice Presidential debate at Centre College in Danville, local officials say the school is ready for the next step. Centre College has now held two vice presidential debates: this year’s and one in 2000. Both went smoothly behind the scenes, and Kentucky officials such as Attorney General Jack Conway say it may be time for Centre to host a presidential debate.

"I think it would be great," said Conway. " I think President Roush and what this campus and what this community have done, has certainly shown they are ready for primetime, they’ve done it now twice.”

Others are hopeful that Centre could at least become a vice presidential debate mainstay in the future.
