GOP 8th District debate July 20

If you live in the 8th District and are able to head to New London the evening of July 20 for a debate.

Republican candidates for the 8th Congressional District will debate at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 20, at New London High School, 1700 Klatt Road.

Sponsored by the Waupaca County Republican Party, the event is free and open to the public.

All four Republican candidates running for the seat are scheduled to participate.

Former state Rep. Terri McCormick, from Greenville, is a teacher, small-business owner and published author.

Reid Ribble is a former owner of The Ribble Group, a family of roofing companies located in Kaukauna.

State Rep. Roger Roth, from the town of Grand Chute in Outagamie County, is a homebuilder and veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Marc Savard is a farmer, small businessman and former Door County Board supervisor.

The candidates will answer a field of questions from a panel of journalists, including John Faucher, County Post; Ward Wittman, Clintonville Chronicle; John Hammond, WDUX Radio; and Rich Kremer, WTCH/WJMQ Radio. Questions will also be taken from the audience.

“This is a great opportunity for people from Waupaca County and the surrounding area to actually see and hear all of the Republican candidates at one time in one place,” said Fred Zaug, moderator for the debate. “I think that by the end of the evening, everyone will have a better idea of who these people are and what they stand for.”

The primary election is set for Tuesday, Sept. 14, and the general election will be held Nov. 2. (Source: Waupaca Now)
