The Sun previously reported that Amy McGrath, the Democratic candidate for 6th District U.S. Representative, would be sending a representative in her place for the Clark County Candidates Forum Tuesday night.


A representative from her campaign contacted The Sun Monday to confirm they would not be sending a representative to participate in Tuesday’s forum, citing a town hall forum hosted by WLEX/Hey Kentucky!, which airs the same time as the local forum.



“We appreciate the offer to send a surrogate, but we feel we are unable to at this time due to the conflict of the town hall airing the same time as the forum is taking place,”┬áJackie Thompson, press secretary for McGrath for Congress, said in an email Monday.



McGrath’s opponent, Andy Barr, will participate in the local forum.
