(CNN) - President Barack Obama was a central theme of a televised debate Sunday between Kentucky's two U.S. Senate candidates.
Rand Paul, the Tea Party backed Republican who beat a mainstream GOP opponent in the primary, accused Democratic nominee Jack Conway of hewing to Obama's agenda at the risk of the nation's economic stability.
"I think this election really is about the president's agenda," Paul said "Do you support the president's agenda or do you not support it? I think his agenda's wrong for America. I will stand up against President Obama's agenda. And I think that's what people in Kentucky want.
