Wednesday night, First Coast voters heard from four congressional candidates at two events.
The virtual presidential debate initially scheduled for Thursday night was canceled upon Trump’s refusal to participate.
Back on the First Coast, incumbent U.S. Rep. Al Lawson (D-FL5) and Republican challenger Gary Adler took part in a virtual forum while incumbent U.S. Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL4) debated Democratic challenger Donna Deegan.
