Six Democrats and one Republican seeking to represent the North Coast in Congress squared off Wednesday night in a forum sponsored by California North Coast Media.
The forum, filmed at Pixel Corps Studios in Petaluma, featured candidates for the 2nd Congressional District, which will be left open by the retirement of Rep. Lynn Woolsey.
Six Democrats participated in the debate: Marin County Supervisor Susan Adams, Mendocino physician William Courtney, Assemblyman Jared Huffman of San Rafael, San Rafael businesswoman Stacey Lawson, Petaluma City Councilwoman Tiffany Renee, and Marin activist Norman Solomon. One Republican, Tiburon securities broker Dan Roberts, also participated.
Andy Caffrey, a member of the Green Party, asked to participate but the request came too late for him to be included in the forum, organizers said. Caffrey was allowed to make an opening statement at the beginning of the forum.
Watch the debate below. Who do you think would make the best representative?
