Complete US Senate debate
Recorded live in front of a Expo center audience in Waukesha, tonight’s Senate debate between Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, former Congressman Mark Neumann, Kip Smith, and Eric Hovde.
Watching the entire thing, I think all of the candidates did well and nobody made a major gaffe. In that sense, both Fitzgerald and Hovde won because Neumann did not look more impressive than either of them. If those three candidates are seen as equal, then the real question is which of them is most able of defeating former Governor Tommy Thompson for the Republican nomination? While I think Neumann did not make too many mistakes tonight, there was nothing that really set him apart from the other candidates.
