Often, on One to One, I’m taping programs that have a long shelf life; people are available, schedules are arranged, politicians are home during an August recess from their duties in Washington. I have to ask them to come to our KET studios when they can work us into their schedules.
That all happened this week. Senator Rand Paul, 6th District Congressman Ben Chandler, and Chandler’s opponent in the November election, Andy Barr, all came by to tape a program this week. Their conversations with me won’t be on the air until September.
Of course, their availability coincided with the announcement that Paul Ryan has been chosen by Mitt Romney as his running mate. That is big news: immediate, timely, and interesting.
I wanted to get the reaction of Paul, Chandler, and Barr. Here’s what they had to say.
