Incumbent Rep. Jim Moran (D), whose eighth congressional district includes Arlington, will take the stage tonight with the men hoping to unseat him in the fall.

Republican primary opponents Matthew Berry and Patrick Murray are expected to participate in tonight’s debate, as is Independent-Green party candidate Ron Fisher. ABC7 reporter Scott Thuman will moderate.

The debate is sponsored by the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce in partnership with a number of other local chambers of commerce. Tickets are $35 for Chamber members, and $45 for everyone else.

It will take place at the Ritz Carlton in Pentagon City from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

    This was the original plan, but unless something has changed in the past 3 days Moran will not be onstage with the other candidates. As I understand it he will appear separately on stage after the Republican and Green candidates debate each other.

    Moran is a drunk and a coward.

  • Dave T

    Moran will simply stand on stage, declare that he is a democrat and raise his hands in victory. Nothing else matters in the 8th.
