First Wisconsin Governor’s Debate Tonight.

Tonight is the first Governor’s debate from the studios of Today’s TMJ 4 in Milwaukee.  North Shore Exponent will be covering tomorrow’s debate.  Also, the debate will be scored.

The scoring for tomorrow’s debate will use a 6-5-4-3 scale.  Also, bonus points will be awarded in addition to any point deductions.  Just because a candidate answers a question does not merit them points alone.  The candidates will have to earn the points on the big stage.  Here is a description of the scoring system used tonight:

6 Points-Excellent

6 points would be awarded if a candidate answers the question and uses clear details to prove their answers.

5 Points-Good


5 points would be awarded if a candidate answers a question, uses clear details, but may be asked by a panelist or moderator to clarify their points to the audience.

4 Points-Fair

4 points may be awarded if a candidate makes a concerted to answer a question correctly, but is having difficulty to substantiate their talking points.

3 Points-Average

3 points may be awarded if a candidate answers a question correctly, but fails to substantiate their points of emphasis.

Points will be not awarded on a question if a candidate does the any of the following:

  • Evades the panelists/moderators question.
  • Speaks out of turn to attack an opponent.
  • Unsportsmanlike conduct.
  • Uses repeated clichés.

Also, points can be deducted to a candidate for the following:

-2 Points-Talks out of turn to attack opponent.

-3 Points-Unsportsmanlike Conduct.

-4 Points-Flagrant Misconduct or Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire.
