District 1 Congressional Debate

The candidates in the District 1 Congressional race are set to go head-to-head once again in a public debate tonight, sponsored and organized by KLTV, KTRE and UT Tyler.

Last Monday night's debate in Nacogdoches had its share of fireworks. The candidates sparred over issues from social security, tor the war in Iraq, and the ever-present negative campaign ads.

Tonight, Republican Louie Gohmert and Incumbent Max Sandlin, will face-off at UT Tyler's Cowan Center.  The debate begins at 7 o'clock.

The debate will air in its entirety tomorrow night at 7, on KLTV.
