Evers, Michels to debate just once before election

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and Republican challenger Tim Michels have agreed to debate just one time ahead of the Nov. 8 election.

The debate will be Oct. 14, hosted by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, held in Madison and broadcast statewide.

Both campaigns put out a joint statement announcing the agreement on Monday.

In 2018, Evers debated then-Gov. Scott Walker twice in October.

Michels, co-owner of construction company Michels Corp., debated his Republican challengers twice this summer.

One was in a traditional debate format and the other was a town hall where questions came from people in the audience.
