Attorney general candidates agree to debate

happ-schimelMADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin attorney general hopefuls Brad Schimel and Susan Happ have agreed to a debate next month.

Schimel, a Republican, and Happ, a Democrat, said Thursday they’ve agreed to a debate sponsored by Wisconsin Public Television, Wisconsin Public Radio and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in Madison on Oct. 24.

Schimel, who serves as Waukesha County district attorney, and Happ, who serves as Jefferson County district attorney, are set to square off in the Nov. 4 election. The winner will replace incumbent Republican J.B. Van Hollen, who isn’t seeking re-election.

A Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Schimel and Happ are about even in the race.
