The League of Women Voters

The League of Women Voters of Janesville will host a watch party in Janesville to watch the 1st District Congressional debate to be held in Oak Creek on Friday, Oct. 19.
The party was organized after Democrat Randy Bryce and Republican Bryan Steil did not respond in time to an Aug. 15 request to debate in an event organized by the league and Forward Janesville, league President Linda Reinhardt said. UW-Whitewater at Rock County will host the party in Allen Hall, 2909 Kellogg Ave.
The league hoped to host a debate in late September or early October so people who vote early could have a chance to hear from the candidates, Reinhardt said.
The only candidate who agreed to the debate was Ken Yorgan, who is running as an independent, Reinhardt said.
Bryce and Steil have agreed to three debates in October, starting with the Oct. 19 event.
The watch party is open to the public. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the debate scheduled to start at 7:30. The debate will be broadcast live at and
