Since Republican Steve Beren took second place in the 7th Congressional District primary, he's been trying to get longtime congressman Jim McDermott, D-Seattle, to debate him. Their meeting is finally scheduled: the two candidates will debate at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29, at the Maple Leaf Community Council at Olympic View Elementary School, 504 NE 95th St.

In 10 terms, McDermott has never come close to losing a re-election contest, and Beren is trailing the popular liberal Congressman. But that hasn't stopped Beren from running an active campaign, running a radio ad and challenging McDermott's views on energy supply and foreign relations.

McDermott's campaign has been less active, and the candidate forum isn't even listed on his campaign Web site. But a spokesman for his campaign said he plans to be there unless something comes up.

"So far, we're scheduled to be there," the spokesman said.
