Congressional Debate: Baldwin and Lee face off in Madison

MADISON (WKOW) -- Democratic Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin and her Republican challenger Chad Lee faced off in a debate in Madison Sunday.

Baldwin and Lee talked global issues in front of a crowd of students at the UW.  The candidates discussed national security, nuclear proliferation and plans to fix illegal immigration.

Rep. Baldwin said, "What it would include in my mind is acknowledge the illegal act, pay a penalty and get in line, get in the back of the line, but still have a chance."

Lee said, "We need to first of all secure our borders, whatever that takes. If it means building a fence, then we need to build a fence - but if there are other means, then by all means lets do that but one way or another we have to secure the border."

Baldwin has represented Wisconsin's 2nd Congressional District since 1999.
