Candidates forum June 2 for 8th District Democrats
Six Illinois League of Women Voters organizations will jointly host a forum at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 2, for Junaid Ahmed and U.S. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, the two candidates running in the June 28 Democratic primary for the 8th District U.S. House seat.
The forum will be held at the Gail Borden Library, 270 N. Grove Ave. in Elgin. The event will be open to the public and livestreamed and recorded for later viewing.
Carol Grom, voter service chair of the LWV of the Elgin Area, said a similar forum was planned for Republican candidates, but it was canceled because only one of five candidates committed to attend.
