Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives will discuss their platforms and answer questions during a three-hour forum Saturday in Glen Burnie.
Six of seven Senate candidates as well as candidates for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th district congressional seats will participate, said Linda Lamone, president of the newly formed club,Democratic Women of Anne Arundel County.
The forum will begin at 3:30 p.m., immediately following a short club meeting, Lamone said.
After short speeches by each candidate,and questions to the Senate candidates, Lamone said the House candidates will split up to meet with the voters from their separate districts.
Anne Arundel County, which has elected a single representative for two decades, was divvied up among four other congressional districts during reapportionment last fall.
