It’s more a forum than a debate but the newspaper’s primary forum between Pombo and his GOP challenger, former Congressman Pete McCloskey, produced plenty of fireworks and a packed house.

This race has been heating up in recent weeks, so watch for both sides to stuff the room with their supporters and their campaign signs. The crowd will include folks from a number of national environmental and liberal organizations that are spending money in this district in an effort to oust Pombo.
