Democratic candidates for Indiana’s 9th Congressional District met at the Indiana University Memorial Union, last night. Liz Watson, Dan Canon and Rob Chatlos spoke to a crowded and diverse audience in the Union’s Whittenberger Auditorium. The candidate forum was put together by Campus Action for Democracy, a leftist student organization affiliated with Hoosier Action. Campus Action for Democracy also reportedly invited incumbent Republican ninth district congressman Trey Hollingsworth, who did not attend.

Watson, Canon and Chatlos spoke to question from Campus Action members, varying from climate change and student debt to gun control and addiction.
