Hulsey calls for county-by-county debates before primary

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) State Assembly Democrat Brett Hulsey promises to ruffle some feathers as he runs for governor. Yesterday, the Madison lawmaker challenged Democratic front-runner Mary Burke to debates in each of Wisconsin's 72 counties. He said he expected Burke to decline -- at which time he would have a volunteer in a chicken suit follow Burke around, wearing a T-shirt that says "Too Chicken to be Governor."

Hulsey announced Monday he would challenge Burke in a mid-August primary.

Burke's campaign has said it remains focused on defeating Republican Scott Walker in November.
