Meet and greet held in Brooklyn with candidates for 10th Congressional District
Voters got a chance Monday to talk with the candidates running for the open seat in New York's 10th Congressional District, which covers Lower Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn.
Brooklyn Young Democrats hosted the meet and greet, inviting candidates running in what many consider one of the most competitive races in the August primary election.
Six of the 12 Democratic candidates on the ballot spoke to voters to let them know more about them.
Many residents in the crowd came prepared with tough questions, asking about topics from climate change to student loan forgiveness.
Candidates took their turns to make their case on why they should be voted for. They also laid out their plans for if they are elected.
Early voting runs through Sunday. Primary election day is on Aug. 23.
