A 5th Congressional District Debate is being held Tuesday night at the Portuguese Cultural Center from 7 to 8:30pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm. The candidates for the open seat are Democrat Jahana Hayes and Republican Manny Santos. This will be their second debate in the district. After answering questions posed by a panel, the candidates will take questions submitted by the audience. The League of Women Voters will be screening the questions from the audience to avoid duplication.
