By Scott Bauer Associated Press MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke will appear together on the same stage Friday night for the first of two debates, giving voters in their hotly contested governor's race a chance to size up the candidates less than a month before the election. Burke, a former Trek Bicycles executive and state Commerce Department secretary, is trying to knock off the better-known Walker, who is on the ballot for the third time in four years.
