Debate central: Milwaukee to host the Democratic candidates for president

The national spotlight returns to Milwaukee next month. The city, which hosted a GOP debate last fall, will host a Democratic presidential debate at 8 p.m. on Feb. 11.

The forum is at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus with PBS NewsHour co-anchors Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff as moderators.

“UW-Milwaukee has a long history of promoting civil discourse on important issues facing our society, and we are proud to host the debate on our campus,” University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Chancellor Mark Mone said in a statement. “Our school is an incredibly strong academic institution with a vast alumni base, robust research profile and deep connection to the Milwaukee community — and we very much look forward to welcoming presidential candidates here this upcoming February.”
