Many locals got in on the questioning today for several candidates vying for the governor’s seat. With many people in the race, a local forum looked to give the audience more control with a public interview forum at Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire.
Nine democratic candidates were set up in a sort of “speed-dating” style forum. The public had the opportunity to ask questions on education, environmental issues, health care, and the economy.
“The speed-dating format of the forum is designed to allow people to ask their own questions instead of having scripted questions, so people can interact directly with the candidates.”
The Republican Party of Wisconsin responding to today’s forum, saying Walker continues to get positive things done for our state and — quote — “the wide-open field of highly-flawed democrats is campaigning against Wisconsin’s comeback and embracing the failed policies of yesterday.”
