The four-term GOP incumbent was debating Democratic newcomer Jamie Mahlberg when the incident occurred.
The article goes on to state the following:
Quam and Mahlberg passed a single microphone back and forth as they discussed a variety of issues. But when Mahlberg answered a question about how to address education funding, Quam raised a card to signal he wanted to offer a rebuttal.
