Rep. Duffy Releases Debate Schedule, Challenger says She wasn't Contacted

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) -- Two weeks after a confrontation about scheduling debates, Representative Sean Duffy's campaign has released an email thanking hosts for two upcoming debates.

The email states Rep. Duffy and democratic challenger Mary Hoeft will debate Nov. 3 in Wausau, and Nov. 4 in Hayward.

During a phone conversation with NewsChannel 7 Thursday afternoon Hoeft said she was not aware of the schedule until we told her. And went on to say she felt “blindsided”.

NewsChannel 7 has reached out to Duffy's campaign requesting more information about how the debate schedule was developed and will share more information when we get it.

Duffy has served three terms in Wisconsin's Congressional District 7. The election is Nov. 8.
