MADISON, Wis. (AP) - As Wisconsin’s closely watched Senate race enters its final weeks, voters will get two chances to see the candidates sharing the debate stage.

Sen. Ron Johnson and Democrat Russ Feingold will meet for their first debate on Friday in Green Bay with the second debate Tuesday in Milwaukee.

A Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows the race to be about even among likely voters.

The poll showed Feingold with 46 percent support compared to 44 percent for Johnson, a difference within the poll’s 3.9-point margin of error.

Johnson has never led in the Marquette polls since Feingold got in the race 16 months ago.

The latest Marquette poll was conducted Oct. 6 through Sunday, sampling 878 likely Wisconsin voters.
