MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The four Republicans vying for a shot at Wisconsin's open U.S. Senate seat are scheduled to attend one more debate before Tuesday's primary election.

Tommy Thompson, Eric Hovde, Mark Neumann and Jeff Fitzgerald are set to appear on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus Friday evening for an hour-long debate sponsored by Wisconsin Public Television, Wisconsin Public Radio, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee.

The candidates will spend the first half of the debate fielding questions about the economy and the second half taking questions about health care.

The primary winner will face Democrat Tammy Baldwin in the November general election.
