Forum for Congressional candidates held at Hoover High

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Congressman Spencer Bachus will retire at the end of his current term. Several candidates have their eyes on his position. All seven candidates in the field for the 6th district seat took part in a forum hosted by radio station WERC.

They took questions from Hoover High School students about everything, from healthcare, the economy, and even the legalization of marijuana. If you missed out on the debate there’s still plenty of time to research the candidates.

The primary isn’t until June 3rd. If needed, a run-off election will be July 15th.

The general election is set for November 4th.
