Fourteen candidates are currently running to replace retiring Congressman Denny Heck, who plans on running this fall for lieutenant governor.

The hosts of this debate narrowed the list of those running down to the top six candidates, per Federal Election Commission fundraising criterium: State Rep. Kristine Reeves, former Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland, State Rep. Beth Doglio, Heck’s former communications director Phil Gardner, Joshua Collins and Nancy Dailey Slotnick.

The 10th Congressional District makes up a majority of the south Puget Sound area, and includes Olympia, Lakewood, Tumwater, parts of Tacoma, Puyallup and Yelm.

The Washington State Wire is a nonpartisan platform that discusses state and congressional politics. Its publisher, DJ Wilson, will moderate the event.
