Two candidates vying for the U.S. House of Representatives seat now held by U.S. Rep. John Sullivan will debate each other Tuesday evening in Bartlesville.

The debate between Republican Jim Bridenstine and Democrat John Olson begins at 6 p.m.  Oklahoma Wesleyan University will host the event at its Lyon Chapel and Fine Arts Center on Silver Lake Road.

Bridenstine defeated Sullivan, a five-term incumbent, in the June primary. Olson had no primary opponent.

Independent Craig Allen is also on the ballot for the 1st District seat.

The university's president, Dr. Everett Piper, will serve as host and moderator. Questions will be taken from students and others in attendance.
