Col. Tom Brewer taking on Rep. Adrian Smith tonight in Congressional debate

Posted: Updated:
The stage is set,  and the debate between two Republican candidates for U.S. Representative is getting underway Friday at 5:30. 
Congressman Adrian Smith is being challenged by Colonel Tom Brewer to represent Nebraska's Third Congressional District.

Both men have been hitting the campaign trail hard since January. Now, they are squaring off in the only debate that has been scheduled.
Both Smith and Brewer stopped by the KOTA Territory Studios today to talk about what they hope to accomplish with this debate.

Smith says he wants to have a strong conversation on the issues. "The issues are important," says Smith. "We have a $17 trillion dollar debt facing our country- facing our economy. And if we don't actually reduce spending even more- we've changed the debate on how much to spend on how much to cut."
Col. Brewer says tonight's debate should be about having a clear distinct difference between candidates. "And I think the difference is going to come out that I'm a natural leader," says Brewer. "It's what I've  been doing my whole life and a fighter. And those are two things that everybody seems to be looking for."

News Director Ryan Murphy will be posting live updates from the debate, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Check back with throughout the evening to see where Smith and Brewer stand on the issues.
