On Monday, May 9, ABC 7's Sam Ford moderated a wide-ranging discussion between attorney general candidates Ryan Jones and Bruce Spiva. Their conversation touched on crime, homelessness, abortion rights, and the cannabis market and status of legalization, among other topics.
(Candidate Brian Schwalb is recovering from COVID and was unable to attend. We'll be sharing the questions with his campaign so he can submit written answers, which we'll post when we receive them.)

ABC 7 both broadcast and recorded the forum, and you can access it at their website. The site also provides a brief written recap of the candidates' answers to selected questions.
