Candidates debate questions from broadcast journalists

The WBA Foundation hosted two political debates in the last week to give voters more information about candidates on the ballot in two important statewide races.

In Wausau, Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Leah Vukmir took questions from Holly Chilsen, WSAW-TV; Ben Meyer, WJFW-TV; Chris Conley, WSAU, Melissa Langbehn, WAOW-TV, and Jeff Thelen, WSAW-TV.

In Madison, Gov. Scott Walker and Tony Evers took questions from Jessica Arp, WISC-TV; Emilee Fannon, WKOW-TV; Lupita Montoto, La Movida Radio; and Leigh Mills, WMTV-TV.

Thank you to these hard working journalists who put hours into preparing for these debates.

Both debates aired on more than 80 radio and TV stations throughout Wisconsin, and some may rebroadcast it before the Nov. 6 election. Check your local listings. The debates will also soon be posted to the WBA Museum website.
