GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - GOP Rep. Justin Amash and Democratic challenger Bob Goodrich shared a stage on the campus of Grand Valley State University, engaging in a debate in their Third Congressional District race.
The pair discussed a variety of issues from immigration, to ISIS, to the economy.
Each candidate was also asked to assess the threat of Ebola in the United States.
While Amash and Goodrich disagreed on several topics, they were closer to consensus on this health crisis, urging people to balance anxiety with vigilance.
Amash stressed he in concern Ebola is serious and could spread.
"We need to do a better job of securing our country from flights that are coming from those parts of the world," Amash said. "There should be at least some indication whether the passengers coming in have been infected or exposed."
The White House on Wednesday announced fever screening would be conducted at five U.S. airports for passengers arriving from Ebola-stricken nations.
The debate took place at Grand Valley State University’s Eberhard Center Auditorium.
