Baldwin, Vukmir talk foreign policy in final debate

Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Republican challenger Leah Vukmir talked foreign policy for the first time together in their final debate by weighing in on the alleged killing of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Baldwin says the U.S. should impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia and Vukmir agrees but added that she trusts President Donald Trump to make a decision once he "has all the information."

The candidates had their final debate Friday night at the Marquette University Law School.

They also drew contrasts on some familiar themes, including health care, taxes, and immigration.

Both disagreed on the benefits of the Republican tax reform bill, with Baldwin saying it benefits the wealthy and Vukmir saying it's helping working families.

Baldwin has been leading Vukmir in the polls .
