LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) - The two main candidates for Louisville mayor, Republican Hal Heiner and Democrat Greg Fischer, square off in a sold out debate on Wednesday at the Louisville Forum. It is the first debate since the latest poll in the contest.

The only other actively campaigning candidate, independent Jackie Green, did not meet the required 15% threshhold of support in last week's WHAS11/Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll of the mayor's race.  Green polled at 2%, but contended that the poll was faulty because it surveys people by telephone and only calls people with landlines.  Green says his supporters tend to be younger and use mobile phones, not landlines.

The Courier-Journal's Dan Klepal reports on the organization's policy to include only the candidates who have a chance at winning.

WHAS11's Joe Arnold moderated the forum, which will be broadcast Wednesday night on WFPL Radio.
