Three Republicans and one Democrat weighed in on key issues ahead of the May primary, according to News Center 7 Reporter Sean Cudahy.

Democrat candidate Zach Dickerson called for bipartisanship. His primary opponent, Autumn Kern, was not at the forum.

The Republican candidates discussed taxes, Medicaid and schools. All of the candidates answered questions regarding gun control.

“We’ve made their jobs difficult enough by giving them so many restrictions,” Republican candidate Sarah Clark said.

“There are smarter, better ways to make our schools safer,” Dickerson said.

“I do not believe that students should be armed...in any capacity,” Republican candidate Marcus Rech said.

>>Brooke Richardson off house arrest, but judge imposes other restrictions

“Right now, it’s up to each community and that’s how I think it should be,” State Rep. Niraj Antani, R-Miamisburg, said.

The forum was organized by the Dayton League of Women Voters who said they think it’s important for people to know where the candidates stand.

The primary election is set for May 8.
