League of Women Voters host first and possibly only public forum with candidates
On Monday night, multiple chapters of the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Illinois hosted a virtual candidates forum for the 6th congressional district which included Congressman Sean Casten, Republican challenger Jeanne Ives and Libertarian candidate Bill Redpath.
The entire forum lasted just under an hour and a half.
The video replay of last night’s ZOOM candidates forum was posted this morning:
While Redpath’s appearance was allowed by LWV rules which require all candidates on the ballot to be invited to participate, this contest is between incumbent Casten and challenger Ives, as even Redpath himself admitted during the forum.
How do you think the candidates did? Who do you think won the forum between Casten and Ives? How would you grade the candidates? Please let us know in the comments, and please keep the comments for this article focused on the Monday night candidates forum. Thank you.
Here is the Daily Herald‘s write-up of last night for a reference.
