The Dranesville District Democratic Committee (DDDC) is co-hosting with the Providence District Democratic Committee and the Fairfax County Young Democrats a forum for the Democratic candidates in the 8th congressional District primary contest this week in McLean.

The forum will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 15 at the Alden Theatre located in the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean, Virginia (see map).
