The three announced Democratic candidates for Washington lieutenant governor will meet in a forum at the Lynnwood Convention Center Friday at 6:30pm.
The Convention Center is at 3711 196th St SW, Lynnwood.
Everett Herald politics writer Jerry Cornfield will moderate the forum among the three candidates: State Rep. Jim Moeller and State Sens. Karen Fraser and Cyrus Habib.
Incumbent Democratic Lt. Governor Brad Owen has yet to announce whether he will seek a sixth four-year term. He has reported no campaign fundraising or spending.
Two Republicans and a Libertarian also are declared candidates.
Candidates file in early May for places on the August primary ballot. The top two vote getters in the primary, regardless of party, advance to the November general-election ballot.
The 32nd Legislative District Democrats are sponsors of the Friday event. The 32nd District includes Shoreline, part of northwest Seattle, Lynnwood, Woodway and nearby unincorporated areas of southwest Snohomish County, and parts of Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace.
