MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - If you follow the news media this weekend, you'll probably get to learn more from the candidates for Wisconsin attorney general.  

The state's Professional Police Association is holding a debate with all four candidates. The union was planning to close the forum to the media, because it's part of the group's process for endorsing a candidate.  

But after the AP raised questions, the union decided to open the debate to the media, so voters can get a better idea about the four candidates in advance of the mid-August primary.  

Three of the four hopefuls are Democrats -- district attorneys Ismael Ozanne and Susan Happ, and state Representative Jon Richards.  

DA Brad Schimel is the only Republican candidate for the attorney general's post, which is being vacated by Republican J.B. Van Hollen.
