The forum was moderated by ABC 7's Political Reporter Craig Wall and Univision anchor Enrique Rodriguez at Mi Tierra Restaurant, 2528 South Kedzie, Chicago. (*Note: With only one Republican candidate running for the seat, there will not be a Republican Primary forum. The Republican candidate is Mark Lorch.) ABC 7 Chicago has been bringing candidate debates and forums to Chicagoans for more than two decades.
The Meet the Candidates Forum gave those living and working in the 4th Congressional District a chance to directly address problems and issue affecting their community. The event was streamed live on abc7chicago.com and on the ABC 7 Chicago Facebook page, Univisionchicago.com and the Univision Chicago Facebook page from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.
The Democratic candidates running in the primary who participated in the forum include Sol Flores, Jesus Chuy Garcia, and Richard Gonzalez.
