All seven candidates hoping to represent the 8th Congressional District took the stage to voice their opinions for the first time on Sunday night.

Immigration reform and gun control were among the topics addressed during the two-hour candidate forum before an audience of more than 100 people at the College of St. Scholastica. Republican Pete Stauber, Independence Party candidate Ray “Skip” Sandman and five Democrats — Joe Radinovich, Kirsten Hagen Kennedy, Leah Phifer, Michelle Lee and Jason Metsa — are vying to fill the seat that will be vacated by U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan, D-Crosby, who decided to not run for re-election this year.
