HUDSON (WEAU) – The two candidates in next month’s recall election in Wisconsin’s tenth senate district have agreed to a series of debates, but the exact number depends on who you ask.

On Friday, challenger Shelly Moore’s (D-River Falls) campaign said in a release that Moore had accepted four debates with Sen. Sheila Harsdorf (R-River Falls). In the release, Moore goes on to say that Harsdorf has been hiding from voters, and refusing to talk openly about the issues that led to her recall.

Harsdorf’s campaign told us that, in May, Moore had proposed three debates, which Harsdorf eventually accepted. It says that the fourth would be sponsored by people who signed the recall petition, and may have even donated to Moore’s campaign. The Moore campaign release says that debate is at an American Association of University Women Candidate Forum on July 27. It’s a debate Harsdorf’s campaign says the senator isn’t interested in participating in.

The three debates the candidates agree on are in Hudson on July 25, River Falls on July 28, and at Wisconsin Public Radio on August 4.

The recall election is August 9.
