The second and final debate in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race will take place later tonight.
Incumbent Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and Democrat Russ Feingold will appear in a 90 minute debate, which will take place on the campus of Milwaukee’s Marquette Law School. It will be broadcast statewide starting at 8:30 this evening.
Johnson and Feingold sparred Friday night on numerous policy differences, including support for their party’s presidential candidates, Johnson’s response to the drug prescription scandal at the Tomah VA Medical Center, and Social Security.
The two are in a tight contest, with the latest Marquette poll showing Feingold with a two point lead. It’s a statistical dead heat when the poll’s margin of error is figured in.
