The Tri-Cities TEA Party hosted a senator forum at the Benton PUD in Kennewick today.
Six candidates who are running for Senator Patty Murray's position came to meet the public. People spent about an hour and half asking each candidate questions.
TEA Party organizers say it was scheduled for people to find out which candidate best represents their political views.
Each candidate also had three minutes to talk about their platform and why they decided to join the race to become a U.S. Senator.
