Starting Monday, Oct. 15 all five candidates running for Wisconsin lieutenant governor will appear on The Morning Show with John Munson.
The interviews will be aired each day at 7 a.m.
Kealey Bultena, executive producer of The Morning Show, said WPR is giving listeners an opportunity they don’t get anywhere else.
“The five candidates offer a range of perspectives, and they have different backgrounds and experiences,” Bultena said. “Each candidate joins us at the same time during the week, so people in the audience can listen and decide who deserves their vote. It’s really a public service unique to public radio. We have an incredible opportunity to hear from people who want to help lead Wisconsin.”
The confirmed schedule for the lieutenant governor candidates is as follows:
- Oct. 15: Tiffany Anderson – Wisconsin Green Party
- Oct. 16: Patrick Baird – Libertarian Party
- Oct. 17: Mandela Barnes – Democrat
- Oct. 18: Rebecca Kleefisch– Republican (Incumbent)
- Oct. 19: Wil Losch – Independent
Leading up to the Nov. 6 general election, WPR has invited ballot-qualified candidates for state and federal offices to speak on The Ideas Network.
Locally, the interviews can be heard on WHLA-FM (90.3), La Crosse, or anywhere at wpr.org.
