The race for the 8th Congressional District is one of the most-watched in Washington state, and we’ll have the debate between Democrat Kim Schrier and Republican Dino Rossi streaming live on this page. Starting at 7 p.m., both candidates will face tough questions from moderators Natalie Brand of KING 5 and Ross Reynolds of KUOW.

Despite the race being seen by most pundits as a toss-up, last week’s Crosscut/Elway poll found Rossi leading Schrier by 10 points. The poll also found it was women who were breaking in large part for Rossi, going against the narrative that suburban women would propel the “blue wave.”
