Five U.S. Senate candidates are running for the Democratic nomination in Wisconsin.

All five — Mandela Barnes, Kou Lee, Darrell Williams, Steven Olikara, Peter Peckarsky — spent a few minutes answering three questions to help voters better get to know them heading into the end of primary voting on Tuesday (Aug. 9).

None of the candidates knew the questions beforehand.

The winner of Tuesday’s primary will likely face Republican incumbent, Sen. Ron Johnson.

Here are the three questions and below are their answers:

  1. Give me your credentials for being in Congress.
  2. What would your Top 3 priorities be in the US House?
  3. If you could snap your fingers and change something in politics and you didn’t have to jump through any hoops to do it, just poof and it’s changed, what would it be? And why?
