- Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Tony Evers delivered sharp attack lines in their first debate over hot topics in the race including taxes, education, health care and roads.
Some of the most pointed attacks in Friday's debate came on the question of credibility.
Walker shrugged off criticism lodged by four of his former Cabinet secretaries, saying he welcomed diverse opinions.
And Evers downplayed reports that broke hours before the debate that his education budget proposal included uncredited sections lifted from other sources. Evers says "If that's the best Scott Walker as, he doesn't have very much."
Evers again denied Walker's charge that he may raise gas taxes by as much as a dollar a gallon. And Walker defended his attacks on "Obamacare," saying he can oppose that law and still guarantee insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
