The Westport Library and the League of Women Voters of Connecticut and local Leagues of Women Voters from towns throughout the 4th Congressional District, announced today that a debate will be held between the candidates.
The debate between incumbent Congressman Jim Himes(D) and Jonathan Riddle(R) will be moderated by Kay Maxwell.
Please register for the debate being live-streamed from the Trefz Forum at the Westport Library.
