Henry Waxman was first elected to represent California's 33rd Congressional District almost thirty years ago, and his legacy casts a long and enduring shadow over the nation’s policies. Now two candidates, Democratic State Senator Ted Lieu and Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Elan Carr, are vying to replace him. Join us on Wednesday, October 22nd when they face off in one of their last debates before the November 4th election to discuss a full range of domestic and foreign policy challenges awaiting the next Congress.

This debate is jointly presented by KPCC, Southern California Public Radio and the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California, and will be hosted by The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. The debate will be co-moderated by KPCC's Larry Mantle and USC's Dan Schnur.
