MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The four Democrats vying for a shot at unseating Republican Gov. Scott Walker in a recall election are set to clash in a debate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Tom Barrett, Kathleen Falk, Kathleen Vinehout and Doug La Follette all are expected to appear at a debate Friday evening.

The debate will mark final go-round between all four candidates ahead of Tuesday's primary. The winner will advance to face Walker in the June 5 general recall election.

Democrats forced Walker and five other Republicans into recall elections as punishment for passing a contentious law stripping most public workers of their union rights.

Democrats, though, have worked over the last few weeks to turn the election into a referendum on Wisconsin's sputtering economy.

Watch the debate at 7:00 p.m. on TODAY'S TMJ4 channel 4.2 and Time Warner Cable channel 999, listen to it on Newsradio 620 WTMJ and get streaming coverage on both and  TODAY'S TMJ4's Mike Jacobs will co-moderate the debate.
