Will Fisher and Linsey Fagan, Democratic candidates for Texas Congressional District 26, will participate in a debate Saturday at the University of North Texas Lyceum Theater, 1155 Union Circle.

The event, scheduled from 3 to 5 p.m., is open to the public and will be moderated by WFAA-TV senior political reporter Jason Whitely.

Fisher and Fagan are seeking the Democratic nomination in the March 6 primary. The seat is currently held by U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Pilot Point, who is seeking re-election and will face Veronica Birkenstock of Frisco in the March Republican primary.

The winners of each primary will go face each other in the November election.
