Following the crowded March 3 primary election to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, KWTX-TV will air back-to-back forums with the four remaining candidates in the July 14 runoff elections for the U.S. House District 17 seat from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday evening.
Both Republicans — former Dallas-area congressman Pete Sessions and Brazos Eye Surgery co-owner Renee Swann of Waco — and Democratic candidates Rick Kennedy of Pflugerville, a project manager, and Marine veteran David Anthony Jaramillo of Waco, will participate.
The Democratic candidates will speak for 45 minutes from the Waco TV studio at 6:30 p.m., followed immediately by the pair of Republicans.
KWTX anchor/political reporter Tara Mergener and anchor/reporter Karla Castillo of Bryan-based KBTX-TV will co-moderate the forums. Look for a story on the forums on wacotrib.com Saturday night.
