For those who tuned into the KET debate expecting fist fights or shouting between Republican Rand Paul and Democrat Jack Conway, they didn't get it.
For those who tuned in looking for some new positions or witty one-liners or memorable lines of any sort, well, they were probably disappointed to.
What Kentuckians did get was two candidates soberly disagreeing about policies, such as the pros and cons of the stimulus bill and health care reform law.
Conway and Paul both looked and sounded much more senatorial than they did eight days ago at one of the most bizarre debates for any office higher than 5th grade class president.
There was no talk of "Aqua Buddha." Instead, Paul got back to talking a lot about President Barack Obama. And Conway took digs at Paul over his statements supporting a proposal to replace the income tax with a 23% national sales tax and potentially raising what future retirees have to pay for Medicare coverage. For the play-by-play, feel free to go back to our cn|2 Politics live blogging of the debate from the press room at KET's studios in Lexington.
