LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Last week, Senator Mitch McConnell and Democratic challenger Amy McGrath met for their only scheduled debate.

With both candidates on the same stage for the first time, Kentuckians got to compare their platforms side by side.

McGrath and McConnell told voters where they stand on several issues, but the coronavirus was a big focus.

We asked Democratic strategist Matt Erwin and the former communications director for the KY Republican Party, Tres Watson, for their reaction to the debate.
