Candidates to attend aging and disability forum


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Candidates for U.S. Senate and governor in Wisconsin are scheduled to attend a daylong forum on aging and disability long-term care in Green Bay.

Friday's forum was being organized by a coalition of senior, disability and human services organizations.

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, a Democrat, was scheduled to attend along with two Republicans vying to replace him, Ron Johnson and Dave Westlake. Democratic candidate for governor Tom Barrett, along with Republican challenger Mark Neumann, were also scheduled to attend. Republican candidate Scott Walker will not be there.

The candidates will not be debating but instead will speak throughout the day at different times. Organizers expect about 500 people to attend.
