Impressive. Although both parties seem content on letting Afghanistan and Iraq drift into the hazy past like a drunken weekend of poor decisions and forgotten consequences, the voters of the Second Congressional District will nevertheless be given the privilege of hearing Rep. Tammy Baldwin and her Republican opponent, Chad Lee, answer questions about foreign policy.
Six-term Democratic incumbent US Representative Tammy Baldwin and Republican challenger Chad Lee will discuss international issues from 4-5:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, 2010 in Room 2080 Grainger Hall (the University of Wisconsin-Madison's new Business School building), 975 University Avenue, Madison.
UW-Madison political science professor of international relations Jon Pevehouse will moderate the Global Affairs Forum organized by the United Nations Association-Dane County and other interested civic groups.
UNA-Dane County has organized a Global Affairs Forum in Madison every Congressional election cycle since 1998 so that the public can learn where the candidates for the 2nd District seat stand on crucial international issues.
As in previous UNA global forums, the opening questions will be supplied by the co-sponsoring organizations. Written questions will be accepted from the audience and Prof. Pevehouse will ask as many of those questions as time allows.
Bring some questions and hold their feet to the fire! You can see Baldwin's positions on a number of key foreign policy issues here.
