2018 Wisconsin Attorney General Debate To Be Broadcast Statewide Friday, Oct. 12

Wisconsin Attorney General candidates Brad Schimel and Josh Kaul will debate for the first time and discuss issues central to their campaigns in a debate that will be broadcast statewide 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 on Wisconsin Public Television (WPT).

Live from the WPT studios on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, the Wisconsin Attorney General Debate 2018 will be broadcast on WPT and Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR), and streamed online at wpt.org, wpr.org and WisconsinVote.org. The debate is presented by the partnership of Wisconsin Public Television and Wisconsin Public Radio.

            The debate will occur less than one month before the general election on Tuesday, Nov. 6 that will decide whether Schimel, the Republican incumbent, or Kaul, a Democrat and former federal prosecutor, will win a four-year term as Wisconsin Attorney General.

            WPT's Frederica Freyberg and WPR’s Shawn Johnson will moderate the debate, with additional questions coming from audience submissions online. Persons wishing to submit questions may do so on wpt.org.

Wisconsin Attorney General Debate 2018 is part of the partnership’s yearlong 2018 WisconsinVote.org election coverage.

WPT and WPR are services of the Educational Communications Board and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
