MADISON - Gov.
Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke disagree over
whether to criminalize first-offense drunken driving.
Wisconsin is the
only state in the country where first-offense drunken driving is
treated like a traffic offense, not a crime.
Burke said during
Friday's second and final debate that she supports making first
offenses a misdemeanor, saying "We have to take a tougher
stance on this."
opposes that. He says the focus instead should be on toughening
penalties for repeat offenders.
The debate in
Milwaukee is the second and final time Burke and Walker will
square off before the Nov. 4 election.
