Lori Compas, the organizer of and the Democratic candidate in a recall election against Wisconsin State Senate Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald, challenged Fitzgerald to five debates. Well, Fitzgerald has accepted to debate Compas once, on Wednesday, May 23, at 7 P.M. Central Time. The debate will be held at the Jefferson High School Auditorium in Jefferson and aired on Fort Atkinson-based WFAW-AM radio, whose website will livestream the debate over the internet.

If WFAW's livestream is operational during the debate, I will do a liveblog here on DKos of the Fitzgerald-Compas debate. I don't live in Wisconsin, and, therefore, am nowhere near in reach of WFAW's signal, so a liveblog by me of the Fitzgerald-Compas debate will be dependent on me being able to listen to WFAW's online feed during the time in which the debate is taking place.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
