October 15: Dennis Moore and DAs

Because of KU's fall break, "Politics" is and hour and a half instead of its usual hour, and begins at 6:30 p.m. instead of 7:00.

From 6:30 to 7:00 p.m., we'll be joined by Douglas County District Attorney Christine Kenney, who is up for re-election this year. Ms. Kenney was first elected to the office in 1996. She'll discuss her office and its accomplishments since 1996.

Ms. Kenney's challenger is Charles Branson, a Lawrence attorney. He'll join us from 7:00 to 7:30 to discuss his campaign, and why he thinks Doulgas County needs a new District Attorney. We'll take your calls at 864-4044 during this segment of the program.

From 7:30 to 8:00 p.m., we'll talk with Congressman Dennis Moore, who is running for re-election in Kansas' Third Congressional District. Rep. Moore was first elected to this office in 1998. He is being challenged in this race by Kris Kobach, with whom we spoke on October 1.

Scheduling conflicts that were mainly my responsibility prevented Rep. Moore from having more than 30 minutes for this interview. Since Rep. Moore's opponent Mr. Kobach was allowed an hour on this program, every effort will be made to provide Rep. Moore with his additional 30 minutes of equal time prior to election day.
