(Photo by Stephen Koranda)Republican Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins and Democratic challenger Tobias Schlingensiepen (schling - en - zee - pen) squared off in a debate in Lawrence last (THUR) night. Jenkins, from Topeka, is seeking her third term representing the 2nd District. Schlingensiepen, a pastor from Topeka, is hoping to unseat her. The two touched on a variety of issues, including their plans to grow the economy. Schlingensiepen says partisanship in Congress is blocking progress on economic legislation.

That’s Democratic candidate for the 2nd Congressional District Tobias Schlingensiepen. Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins disagrees with his proposals, saying speeding the economic recovery will have more to do with cutting back on taxes and regulations.

That’s Republican Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins speaking at a debate on the University of Kansas Campus last (THUR) night. She’s facing Democrat Tobias Schlingensiepen in the November election. Also running is Libertarian Dennis Hawver.
