“Hundreds of chairs were filled at a Friends University auditorium on Thursday evening as Democrat James Thompson and Libertarian Chris Rockhold squared off in a debate for the 4th Congressional District special election.
“A vacant seat between them was for Republican candidate Ron Estes, who did not attend.
“Both candidates blasted Estes for his absence. The state Republican Party chairman called the forum ‘political theater.’
