Just eight days before voters go to the polls, the candidates in one of the hottest congressional races in the country will appear together on Minnesota Public Radio News.
Democrat Ashwin Madia, Republican Erik Paulsen and Independence Party candidate David Dillon will be Gary Eichten’s guests on Oct. 27. The program will be part of Midday’s “Meet the Candidates” series, running for half an hour starting at 11 a.m. Because of the short time frame, Midday will not be taking listener questions that day.
It is the last joint appearance before election day currently on the candidates’ schedules.
Dillon, Madia and Paulsen first appeared together last month in a debate sponsored by the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce.
The candidates face off tonight in an AARP-sponsored forum. That airs live on Twin Cities Public Television at 7 p.m.
Next week the candidates meet twice more. There is a Sept. 22 forum at Bet Shalom Congregation in Minnetonka starting at 7 p.m. That one is sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas.
Then on Wednesday, Sept. 24, they’ll share the stage at the Plymouth Creek Center in Plymouth. The Minnesota Senior Federation organized that forum, which starts at 9 a.m.
