The Democratic National Committee has picked Wisconsin to host of one of its presidential primary debates.
Wisconsin is one of six states selected to host a debate between this coming October and next spring. The Badger State and
Florida are listed as the final spots on the calendar for debates that will take place in either February or March. The Wisconsin event will be co-hosted by PBS and the state Democratic Party, although a specific location has not been indicated. Other states hosting debates are Nevada, Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff said the party is “thrilled to host a Democratic presidential primary debate and hear from the candidates vying to be our next Democratic president. In stark contrast to the extremism on display across the board in the Republican primary, Democrats will have a positive and robust discussion about how best to grow our middle class economy in a way that expands opportunity for all.”
The Republican National Committee previously named Wisconsin to host one of its primary season debates. It’s scheduled to take place this coming November.
