The Argus Foundation yesterday hosted a forum that included several state senate candidates.

The panel include Frank Cirillo, Doug Holder, Rick Levine, Nora Patterson, and state representatives Ray Pilon and Greg Steube.

The Herald-Tribune counted over 150 people there.

It marked the first time all six candidates participated in such a gathering.

While they showed clear differences of opinion on many issues, the candidates did not engage with each other very much.
