In the statewide race for Secretary of State, the incumbent recently went to war with his challenger in what could be described as a Fancy Farm level cutdown.
Former state Rep. Buddy Wheatley, a Democrat from Kenton County, issued a challenge last week to Secretary of State Mike Adams, R-Kentucky, calling on the incumbent to face him in a debate.
Adams layered on the snark in his response to the invitation to debate before the League of Women Voters in Louisville.
“I’ll debate you if you’ll commit to having a designated driver take you to and from the venue,” Adams tweeted.
Wheatley did not let the jab move him off topic, again pushing for the debate.
“We can talk about whatever you want, Michael – just commit to the debate,” Whealtey responded online. “The people of Kentucky deserve to hear from both candidates, and that’s why I agreed to the debate. I hope you do, too.”
The two candidates will face off at Fancy Farm on August 5, and voters will have their say in the statewide election in November.
