CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Voters in the 6th Illinois Congressional District got a chance Monday evening to see Republican incumbent Peter Roskam square off against his Democratic challenger, Sean Casten.

The candidates discussed several issues, including the GOP tax cut.

Roskam defended the income tax cuts, even in the face of widening federal deficits, as a boon for business that will help most Americans. Casten said they mostly benefit the wealthy.

Casten accused Roskam of being almost completely aligned with President Trump's policies. Roskam claimed he has a strong bi-partisan record in Congress.

The forum was broadcats on WTTW.
