PUEBLO, Colo. -

It could be the last time Republican Rep. Scott Tipton and Democrat Sal Pace face off in Colorado's largest congressional district.

Tipton and Pace have a debate planned Wednesday evening in Pueblo. The candidates have debated before but have no additional debates set before next month's election.

Pace is trying to unseat Tipton after a single term. Pace says Tipton sides too closely with Republicans in the House who support big changes to Medicare and other budget cuts.

Tipton is trying to fend off the challenge with appeals on his service to the district, including support for a new Chimney Rock National Monument in Durango. Tipton argues that Pace is too liberal for the district.

KRDO NewsChannel 13's James Jarman will be moderating the debate.  A media panel from KRDO and the Pueblo Chieftain will be asking the questions.  If you have a question you'd like to ask, feel free to leave a comment below this article.

The debate is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and will stream live on and KRDO NewsRadio.
