Barrett, Walker meet for second debate
MILWAUKEE (AP) – Citizens from across Wisconsin will get a chance to quiz the candidates for governor during the second of three debates before the election.
Democrat Tom Barrett and Republican Scott Walker are meeting for the debate at Marquette University in Milwaukee. The debate is being broadcast on television stations statewide.
The debate is an expanded town hall format that will allow people to ask questions both in the room in Milwaukee and at remote locations in Madison, Green Bay, La Crosse, Eau Claire and Wausau.
Polls show Barrett is trailing Walker in the race, which is the first time Wisconsin’s governor’s office has been open in 28 years. Incumbent Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle decided against seeking a third term.
The third and final debate is Oct. 29 in Madison.
