In the race to succeed Rush Holt in Congress, there are four Democratic candidates; alphabetically Upendra Chivukula, Linda Greenstein, Bonnie Watson Coleman and Andrew Zwicker. Tonight, we’ll have our first chance to see how they stack up against each other, as the League of Women Voters moderates the first debate of the short campaign season that will produce a Democratic nominee in June. Whoever that is, will likely win November in this reliably Democratic distict.

Witherspoon Hall, 400 Witherspoon St., Princeton
Sponsored by League of Women Voters & Princeton Community TV
Participating: Upendra Chivukula, Linda Greenstein, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Andrew Zwicker
