Democratic Presidential Debate To Be held In Wisconsin

August 6, 2015

Who said there was no excitement among Democrats regarding the presidential election?  This news about Wisconsin sizzles all over the place as we gear up tonight for the first GOP debate.

The Democratic National Committee announced Thursday that one of the six debates among its presidential candidates will be held in Wisconsin in February or March, and hosted by PBS and the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.  

Few details about the Democratic debates have been finalized, PBS NewsHour executive producer Sara Just wrote in an e-mail to the State Journal. But Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the DNC chair, wrote in a post on the website Medium that “all five of the announced Democratic candidates have been briefed on the debate schedule and agreed to participate in the DNC sanctioned process.”

The five Democrats who have announced their candidacy so far are Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chaffee and Jim Webb. Clinton is a former Secretary of State and first lady, Sanders is a current Vermont senator, O’Malley is a former governor of Maryland, Chaffee is a former governor of Rhode Island and Webb is a former Virginia senator.

    For the record these are not “real debates”. They are forums and structured in a way to limit ‘real debate’. I just want that point to be clear.

    or did they listen to me and feel the pressure. But its still months away they are working very hard to make sure Hilary is the candidate next November. While Republicans are actually having real debates the DNC is just positioning itself for Hillary.
