Two debates set in 7th CD race

U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy and former state Sen. Pat Kreitlow are set to debate twice in the race for northwestern Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District.

Duffy, R-Weston, announced late Tuesday that he's accepted a debate invitation for Nov. 1 at the Yellowjacket Union on the UW-Superior campus.

He'd previously accepted an invitation for Oct. 22 on the UW-Marathon County campus in Wausau.

"Along with the more than 50 public town halls and hundreds of parades, festivals and dairy breakfasts Congressman Duffy has attended in the last two years, the two debates on October 22 and November 1 will give voters a fair look at the candidates heading into Election Day," Duffy campaign manager Justin Richards said in a statement.

Campaign officials for Kreitlow, D-Chippewa Falls, earlier this week also called for an Oct. 28 televised debate on WSAW-TV, arguing that no TV station had confirmed they would televise the UW-Marathon County debate.

"It would seem hypocritical for Congressman Duffy to brag about his 'accessibility' while delaying confirmation to debates that would be broadcast throughout the district," the Kreitlow Campaign charged in a statement.
