Two Republican candidates for Congress will debate at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in room 300 at Sandusky High School.

The two are businessman Rich Iott and former Toledo police chief Jack Smith.

The Erie County Republican Party is holding the event. Republicans will vote in May on which candidate to nominate to oppose Democratic U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur in the race for the Ninth Congressional District. The Libertarian Party also is nominating a candidate, with Libertarians choosing between Jeremy Swartz and Joseph M. Jaffe.
