LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) - The Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate squared off on Wednesday night.
The top two contenders for the May primary are Attorney General Jack Conway and Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo.
Dozens of people came out to the event on Wednesday where the big topic was the economy and what caused the financial crisis.
"These banks and these insurance companies didn't fail because they got too big,” says the lieutenant governor, “they failed because they deregulated. Regulations had been in place for decades and generations. We need common sense oversight."
According to Attorney General Jack Conway, “Some of those companies got too big and it's because they had these silly derivatives that they hid from the public."
The event was hosted by the Metro Democratic Club.
