The February primary to cut La Crosse’s mayoral candidates from 10 to two is quickly approaching.
WIZM hosted its second primary debate yesterday, featuring Martin Gaul, Zebulan Kemp, Joe Konradt, Vicki Markussen, and Samuel Schneider.
The candidates were split randomly into two groups to get to know them better.
The first debate aired Monday and featured Katherine Blanchard, Jessica Olson, Mitch Reynolds, Chris Stolpa and Greg Saliaras.
Those debates can be seen below or, if you have a ROKU or Apple TV, just search the Around River City channel.
