SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Congressional candidate Jim Evans will be in Springfield today.

Evans, a Democrat, is running against Rep. Billy Long (R-Mo) for the 7th district U.S. House seat this November.

Evans will hold an issues forum tonight about free trade.

That's taking place in the auditorium at the Doubletree Hotel at Glenstone and Kearney, beginning at 6:00 pm. 

Congressman Long was invited to attend, but Evans' staff says he did not respond to the invitation.
