Courtesy of our friends at The Uptake, we'll be streaming the first full-length debate of Republican candidates running for the open seat in Minnesota's Second Congressional District.
The Uptake notes:
A reminder that tonight at 7 PM, your readers can get their first extended look at the five Republican candidates vying for Minnesota's open congressional seat. All five will be debating in a 90 minute GOP sponsored debate at the Gateway Christian Church in Inver Grove Heights and The UpTake is providing a free embeddable live video stream of the event to all media. Scheduled to debate are David Gerson, John Howe, Jason Lewis, Pam Myhra and David Benson-Stabler.
Hosted by the Senate District 52 GOP, the debate features five candidates: David Gerson, John Howe, Jason Lewis, Pam Myhra and David Benson-Stabler. Via the sponsor, here are the candidates' websites or twitter account:

John Howe www.howeforcongress.com/
Pam Myhra www.pamforhouse.com
Jason Lewis www.jasonlewis2016.com

Gerson, Howe, Lewis and Myhra met earlier in a brief debate "on the couch" on TPT Almanac. The Pioneer Press's David Montgomery assessed the meeting in 2nd District Republicans agree on budget but throw a few elbows.
Readers who missed the earlier debate can watch it here.
Angie Craig, Mary Lawrence and Roger Kittelson are seeking the DFL nod for the 2016 contest.
