Will Green show up for debate?
Tonight's the first of two debates between Governor Jim Doyle and Congressman Mark Green, assuming Green shows up for the televised matchup, to be broadcast statewide at 7 p.m.
The Republican playbook in Wisconsin this year has been to run away from opponents.
State Sen. Tom Reynolds has already ducked one debate and is well on his way to doing it again.
State Sen. Dave Zien dissed his primary opponent and sponsors of a radio debate by backing out at the last minute.
Congressman F. Jim Sensenbrenner is avoiding challenger Bryan Kennedy, having just refused another debate invitation, this from a Latino organization in his district.
Green's campaign manager, Mark Graul, was a no-show for a public radio call-in show when he didn't even have to face anyone from Doyle's campaign.
So, two questions as we await tonight's scheduled encounter:
Will Green show up?
If he does, will he be wearing his Ipod?
