Democrat Mikie Sherrill–former Navy chopper pilot and federal prosecutor, Montclair resident and mother of four–and Republican Assemblyman Jay Webber–Harvard law, Morris Plains resident and father of seven–each fielded panel questions for 30 minutes.

Sherrill appeared first on the dais, and so that is the speaking order on the videos.
