WATCH: Two candidates for District 2 Congressional seat participate in debate

Two of the candidates running for the District 2 seat in the US House of Representatives participated  in a debate Tuesday evening.

Democrat Paul Steury and Libertarian William Henry participated, but Republican Rudy Yakym declined the invitation.

The debate is sponsored by the District 2 Debate Commission consisting of the American Democracy Project of IU South Bend, the LaPorte Economic Advancement Project, and local League of Women Voters chapters in Elkhart, LaPorte, and the South Bend area.

Questions for the debate were developed by the coalition in consultation with members of their organizations and voters in their communities.

The District 2 seat was formerly held by the late US Rep. Jackie Walorski who died in August.
