As the 2016 presidential election draws near, debates will continue to shape the nominating process in both parties. Both a Republican and a Democratic presidential candidate debate will be held in Wisconsin.
Fox Business Network and the Wall Street Journal will host the Republican presidential debate, which will take place in Milwaukee on November 10, 2015. The debate will be held at Milwaukee Theater. The debate will play a major role in the early stages of the nominating process, as the debate will be one of the final three remaining before the Iowa Caucuses.
The Democratic National Committee also announced Wisconsin will host the fifth Democratic Party presidential debate on February 11, 2016. The debate will come just after the critical early states of Iowa and New Hampshire hold their nominating contests, and will be the last debate before Super Tuesday. The debate will be broadcast on PBS. A specific location has not been announced.
