4th Congressional district debate gets under way

Several hundred people have shown up to listen to a debate featuring the five Republican candidates for the 4th Congressional district.

The debate at Word of Life Church kicks off shortly, with dozens of people standing along the walls.

The candidates are Jim Anderson, Wink Hartman, Dick Kelsey, Mike Pompeo and Jean Schodorf. They are vying for Rep. Todd Tiahrt’s spot.

Organizers are asking for donations to relief efforts in Haiti, where tens of thousands of people have died after an earthquake earlier this week.
