2006 General Election for Governor – Doyle & Green

Incumbent Wisconsin governor Jim Doyle, a Democrat, faced Republican Congressman Mark Green in this often contentious debate. The two met on October 6, 2006, at the new Discovery World museum in Milwaukee. At the time, Green had chipped away at Doyle’s double-digit lead in the polls until the race was, by most accounts, too close to call. Tax policy, education funding, and disagreements over morality on issues such as stem-cell research dominated headlines at the time; the wide-ranging discussion in this winner-take-all debate touched on those issues and more.
