FRAZER — Republican U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke and Democratic challenger Denise Juneau are meeting in Frazer for the first of two debates scheduled this week.
Monday’s debate on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation begins at 7 p.m. It will be moderated by journalists from Yellowstone Public Radio and the Glasgow Courier.
Zinke is a first-term congressman whose mother is from Glasgow just west of the reservation. He has said his father helped build the Fort Peck Dam.
Juneau is the outgoing superintendent of education. She is seeking to become the first Native American woman in Congress.
A third candidate, Libertarian Mike Fellows, has declined an invitation to join the debate.
A second debate will be held on Thursday in Billings. That will be followed by an Oct. 5 debate in Great Falls.
