Clint Didier and Dan Newhouse have scheduled an Oct. 7 debate.
The debate between the two 4th District Congressional candidates is being presented by Chiawana High School social studies, speech and debate students. The Benton and Franklin Republican parties are advising and supporting the students.
The students are preparing questions for the debate, with none coming from the audience or news media, according to a Benton County Republican Party news release.
The public is welcome at the free debate, scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Chiawana auditorium, 8125 Argent Road in Pasco.
Didier, an Eltopia farmer and former NFL tight end, and Newhouse, a Sunnyside farmer and former state legislator and agriculture director, will have their first general election candidate forum Sept. 24 in Kennewick.
