Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky announced Friday he will debate Democratic opponent Jack Conway after threatening to back out of the planned event earlier this week.

Paul, who enjoys the backing of the tea party and a slim advantage in the polls, had considered withdrawing [1] from Monday’s debate because of Conway’s focus — both in ads and in a previous debate last weekend — on an alleged incident from Paul’s college days, when he reportedly tied up a woman and told her to pray to “Aqua Buddha.”

Despite Paul’s frustrations — he refused to shake Conway’s hand last time they debated — the GOP nominee decided to proceed with the final scheduled debate before Election Day because he said he felt Kentucky voters “deserve” to learn more about the differences between the two candidates.

“While I do not respect Mr. Conway’s inappropriate attacks, I do respect the voters of this state, and therefore will participate in Monday’s final debate,” Paul said in a news conference Friday. “Kentuckians deserve another opportunity to understand the very real differences between Jack and myself.”
