MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Attorney General Brad Schimel and challenger Josh Kaul have agreed to meet for at least one debate next month.

The candidates' first debate is scheduled for Oct. 12 at Wisconsin Public Television's Madison studios. That debate will be televised on public television and run about an hour. Both Kaul and Schimel's campaigns have confirmed that debate.

Kaul spokeswoman Gillian Drummond says the two also have agreed to meet for a second debate on Oct. 16 at a Milwaukee Rotary Club forum and for an Oct. 26 debate hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership in Green Bay.

Schimel's campaign manager Johnny Koremenos didn't immediately reply to an email Thursday afternoon seeking to confirm Schimel has agreed to those two debates.
