Madison (AP) – Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Tony Evers are meeting for their final debate with the election just over a week away.
Evers and Walker will square off Friday on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Polls show the race to be a dead heat.
The debate gives Walker and Evers a chance to make their closing arguments to voters.
Walker is making the case that the state’s economy is strong under his leadership and now is not the time to take a risk on Evers, the state superintendent.
Evers contends that Walker is neglecting the issues people really care about, like education and health care, to further his own political career.
Walker has said he would not seek a fourth term should he win.
