The debate Monday night between candidates for the 30th Congressional District seat was sponsored by the Associated Students of California State University, Northridge. (If the video window does not appear above, refresh the page.)

The participating candidates were Democrats  Rep. Howard Berman and  Rep. Brad Sherman; and Republicans  Mark Reed and  Susan Shelley.

Berman and Sherman are incumbents. They are running against each other because of redistricting, which put them in the same district. The primary election is June 5. Under the new " Top Two Open Primary Act," registered voters can pick a candidate from either party. The top two vote-getters will run against each other in the final, November election.

The panel of moderators ws made up of CSUN alumni, faculty and students. The lead moderater was KFI radio host Bill Handel, a CSUN alumnus; with Michael Sidley, an adjunct faculty member at CSUN and a member of the board of directors of Direct Link Insurance Services; and student Ross Perry, a political science major and a philosophy minor from Fresno, CA.
