Evers, Michels Will Debate Just Once
Candidates for governor to debate Oct. 14, hosted by Wisconsin Broadcasters Association.
The candidates for governor will debate just once before voters head to the polls this year.
Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and Republican challenger Tim Michels announced Monday that they’d agreed to debate Friday, Oct. 14. The event is sponsored by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, whose debates are typically carried by TV and radio stations throughout the state.
It’s rare for there to be just one debate in a general election campaign for governor, but both the Evers and Michels campaigns were onboard with the plan.
The WBA debate will be held in Madison and include journalists from around the state.
Debates were a point of contention in the GOP primary for governor where Michels agreed to some, but not all events with the other candidates. This will be Evers’ first debate since he ran against former Gov. Scott Walker in 2018.
