Stephanie Schmid, the Democratic nominee for Congress in NJ-04, is challenging incumbent Republican Chris Smith to three public debates this fall. Two hosts have already committed to organizing debates, the New Jersey Globe and the League of Women Voters, with dates and times to be announced.
Public debates will allow voters to hear directly from the candidates about the top issues facing New Jersey and our country in 2020 so they can cast informed votes. Stephanie is committed to accountable and transparent leadership and has pledged to hold 39 town halls in her first term alone. Conversely, Representative Smith has not held a public town hall in 27 years. The Schmid campaign hopes these debates will include questions from the public and provide an opportunity for voters to learn more about Stephanie’s record of service and her platform.
