The first debate between the DFL candidates for Congress in Minnesota's Second Congressional District has been scheduled for this Friday.

Democrats Angie Craig, Roger Kittelson, and Mary Lawrence will particpate in a debate which will be broadcast live on the Twin Cities Public Television public affairs program "Almanac."

The Republican candidates for Congress, which included David Gerson, John Howe, Jason Lewis and Pam Myhra, all participated in a similar debate in October on "Almanac."

All of the candidates are hoping to win the seat of Republican Congressman John Kline, who announced in September that he would not seek re-election to Congress next year.
