Rand Paul and Jack Conway will duke it out in the final debate for the Kentucky U.S. Senate seat. The fireworks begin at 8pm EDT and will be moderated by Bill Goodman, host of “Kentucky Tonight” on WKET, the local PBS affiliate. So the Rand Paul – Jack Conway debate will have a live feed. The previous debate resulted in a square-off as Rand confronted Conway for airing an ad questioning Rand’s religious beliefs, and for dredging up a college prank. In a new ad by Rand Paul, he uses a Barack Obama impersonator to praise Jack Conway for supporting health care reform and Cap & Trade.

Kentucky has become an important ‘battleground’ state this cycle. The November 2010 mid-term elections will be dominated by Tea Party supporters and candidates. But the burning question on everyone’s mind is just how big of an impact will the Tea Party make?

Tea Party support for Rand Paul has been extensive. Primarily due to many of the movement emerging from the 2008 Ron Paul candidacy. They come to the table with a Libertarian bend and have little use for either of the ‘big government’ parties. That Rand, and Ron, Paul run as Republicans is purely from practical expediency, as other political parties are usually shun by voters. However, if there is anything we have seen election cycle, is that trends of the old days may have been tossed on the trash heap of history.

Tonight will be the final debate between Rand Paul and Jack Conway. Live feed for the Kentucky U.S. Senate debate will be available on the WKET website (see link below).
