DFL congressional candidate forum Wednesday in Cloquet

Voters will have the opportunity to ask questions of the five DFL candidates for Congress in District 8 during a forum Wednesday, April 4, from 6-9 p.m. at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College in Cloquet.

All DFL candidates — Joe Radinovich, Leah Phifer, Jason Mesta, Michelle Lee and Kirsten Kennedy — have confirmed their attendance.

According to a press release from HD 11A DFL and CD 8 DFL, who are hosting the forum, "to stimulate a free-flowing discussion of issues, a list of pre-determined questions have not been given to each candidate."
