Congressman Bill Keating and District Attorney Sam Sutter are the top two democratic contenders in the race for the new 9th Congressional District seat, and they debate the issues facing the district tonight.

The live radio debate will take place on 95.9 FM WATD out of Marshfield just after the 6 o'clock news. It's the second time the democratic candidates are squaring off in a debate, with a televised debate last month on NECN.

A third debate is scheduled for August 30 at UMass Dartmouth, and it's sponsored by the Southcoast Alliance.
