Walker, Evers meet for final debate

MILWAUKEE (WBAY) - Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Tony Evers met for their final debate in the governor's race Friday night in Milwaukee.

Major topics of interest included health care, higher education, transportation and immigration.

And with the recent attempted mail bombings, the two men addressed how they would approach healing the partisan divide.

"We absolutely believe that what unites us is far, far more important than what divides us. And I'm an educator. That's the way I'm going to be operating as a governor of the state of Wisconsin: seeking common ground, making sure that we talk about what unites us," State Superintendent Evers said.

"It's about talking together and socializing together. I'm confident, as I travel the state, one of the things I'm so proud of is to see how proud people are of their communities, their homes, families, places of work, and yes we are proud of our state, and together together we can keep moving Wisconsin forward," Gov. Walker said.

President Trump visited the Badger State earlier this week to rally for Wisconsin Republicans, and Friday former President Barack Obama showed his support for Wisconsin Democrats at a rally in Milwaukee.
