Representative Scott Rigell and Paul Hirschbiel faced off in a debate tonight.

They're both running to represent the second congressional district.

Both men squared off in front of a crowd in Virginia Beach.

The event was hosted by the community relations council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.

Many of the questions were geared toward the Middle East including Iran's nuclear program.

Both men are competing to represent a district that includes Virginia Beach and parts of Norfolk, Hampton and Newport News.
