The forum will run from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Wausaukee High School, N11941 U.S. 141. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Audience members will be able to submit written questions that will be posed by a moderator.

All the candidates for the race, including incumbent Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Appleton, have been invited to participate, according to the organization. Eight Republicans are challenging Kagen: Door County farmer Marc Savard, former Kaukauna roofing contractor Reid Ribble, Howard physician Marc Trager, state Rep. Roger Roth, former state Rep. Terri McCormick, former Niagara Mayor Joe Stern, Brown County Supervisor Andy Williams and Kerry Thomas of Sayner in Vilas County.

The Marinette group, part of a national organization that calls itself a nonpartisan "movement to unite the people to take back the government of the people" on its Web site, sponsored the first tea party event in Marinette County.

I feel Reid Ribble is the only one able to face down Steve Kagen. Few of the other GOP candidates are likable enough AND are going to raise enough money to mount a respectable challenge. I also like Ribb's business experience.
