Johnson, Feingold begin final Senate debate

In Tuesday evening's final debate in a neck-and-neck Senate race, Sen. But Johnson, who said he's still weighing the pros and cons of TPP, said he'd rather have the next US president renegotiate a deal that would have more support among members of Congress and the general public.

Responding to Trump's recent allegations the election is "rigged," Johnson said he didn't believe that to be true, but agreed with other public complaints made recently by the GOP nominee. "It's in the best interest of Wisconsinites to keep trade deals open", Johnson said, adding that the 6,000 page document may hold the keys to exporting agricultural goods to new markets.

"You bet I would repeal it in a heartbeat", Johnson said. "He has now broken the all-time record with his colleagues of not having a vote for a Supreme Court nominee", Johnson says. But he's had a good working relationship with her.

Ron Johnson's political ads, many of them paid for by the most right-wing financiers in the country, try to present him as your favorite uncle - you know, the guy who used to slip you quarters at family gatherings when you were a kid. He attacked Feingold's political action committee for spending most of its money on staff and office space instead of candidates. Johnson reiterated his support for Donald Trump, without saying the Republican presidential candidate's name, while Feingold continued to back Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Feingold said Johnson has been ineffective as senator and is disqualified to serve because of his blocking of Merrick Garland's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Among his complaints about Feingold's tenure in the Senate, he said, were Feingold's votes against a balanced-budget amendment. The candidates were asked what they could do to reassure voters who are concerned about the economy.

The candidates also disagreed on how to spur economic growth. Now I don't think you need a 1700 mile wall, but you can use technology, you probably need more boots on the ground, but what we need is a commitment by the commander in chief, by the president, and we haven't had that on a bipartisan basis.

Johnson said he would support raising the minimum wage by tying it with inflation, but opposes a large increase, saying it would result in job losses.

In the 90-minute debate, Johnson and Feingold sparred over the future of the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's pending appointment to the United States Supreme Court, raising the minimum wage and immigration.
