MN Senate District 5 and 6 Candidates Debate Issues Like School Vouchers, Affordable Housing
Election Day is less than a month away, and on Monday, Lakeland PBS resumed its long tradition of providing viewers a look at state legislative candidates facing off in head-to-head debates.
Our first debate of the season was in Senate District 5, where DFL candidate A. John Peters met up with Republican Paul Utke. One of the topics discussed was public funding being put towards private education in the form of vouchers.
Our second televised debate of the night was the Senate District 6 contest featuring Republican Justin Eichorn and Democrat Steve Samuelson. They weighed in on several issues, including affordable housing for low-income individuals.
Debates continue on Lakeland PBS Tuesday beginning at 7 PM with Senate District 2 candidates Steve Green and Alan Roy.
