Republican Bill Johnson is not only shut out of Wednesday night's "debate" at U of L, but now a political forum in Frankfort next week is not inviting him, either.
Here's the update:
(AP) Republican Bill Johnson's $250,000 investment in his U.S. Senate campaign didn't earn him a spot in a political forum next week in Frankfort.
The Kentucky Association of Manufacturers excluded the western Kentucky businessman from Monday's event at the Capitol Plaza Hotel.
Johnson, who has been airing political ads on cable television for the past month in Kentucky's largest cities, wants equal time at the event with the perceived front-runners in the race.
Ken Carroll, vice president of the manufacturers association, said only two Republicans and two Democrats were invited to speak at the forum because of time constraints.
