WKU Public Radio's Lisa Autry recently traveled to Centre College in Danville to learn more about preperations for next month's Vice-Presidential debate. The only meeting between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan will take place October 11 at the small, liberal arts school in Boyle County.
Lisa spoke to debate organizers and Centre students about what it means to have the VP debate here in Kentucky. Our story will air Thursday morning on WKU Public Radio at 5:50 and 7:50am central time.
We'll also post an audio archive here at our website.
As Centre College prepares to host next month's vice presidential debate, several groups want to prepare Kentucky students for the event. The Secretary of State and the non-profit Kentucky Youth Advocates have partnered with students from Bellarmine University to create lesson plans for Kentucky teachers. The lessons focus on basic civics and include information on political debates.
This year's vice presidential debate at Centre College is shaping up to be a policy wonk's dream. Both Vice President Joe Biden and newly-minted Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan are longtime lawmakers who are steeped in policy.
