All three on ballot for House seat are scheduled to attend

KENOSHA, Wis. – Carthage College will host a forum Tuesday, Oct. 23, for candidates seeking Wisconsin’s 1st District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

All three candidates on the ballot are scheduled to participate: Randy Bryce (Democrat), Bryan Steil (Republican), and Ken Yorgan (Independent). The event will run from 7 to 8 p.m. in A. F. Siebert Chapel on the Carthage campus, 2001 Alford Park Drive.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. All seating is general admission, and no advance registration is required. Attendees may be required to pass through security checkpoints as they enter. General parking is available in the South Lower Lot of campus; limited handicapped parking is available in the South Upper Lot.

The Kenosha News, The Journal Times, the Lake Geneva Regional News, and Carthage are co-sponsoring the forum. After an opening statement by each candidate, questions will be posed by the moderators: Kenosha News executive editor Bob Heisse and Carthage faculty members Katherine Hilson (sociology) and Jeffrey Roberg (political science).

The Nov. 6 general election will determine the successor to House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is stepping down at the end of the term. The 1st District includes all of Kenosha and Racine counties, as well as varying portions of Walworth, Rock, Waukesha, and Milwaukee counties.

Those unable to attend the forum in person can watch a live video stream. For links to the live feed and other information, visit
