The candidates to replace former U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo are expected at a candidate forum this Thursday.

Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters and Women for Kansas Wichita Chapter, the forum will take place this Thursday in Davis Hall, Alumni Auditorium, at Friends University. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the forum begins at 6 p.m.

Attendees are asked to come prepared to submit written questions for the candidates. Writing materials will be provided.
