Newsradio 610 KONA Candidate Forums

Tune in to The Bottom Line weekdays between 3-5 for the Newsradio 610 KONA Candidate Forums.  During September and October, you’ll hear from the candidates themselves ask they answer questions about where they stand on the issues that matter to you!  You’ll get to hear from the candidates running for State Legislature and Senate, County Commissioner and Coroner, as well as the U.S. House and Senate.  It is your audio voter’s pamphlet as we prepare for the midterms of 2018!    Listed in the table below are the Candidate Forums and participant confirmed.
