Nolan and Mills will be joined by Green Party candidate Skip Sandman.

Here's the stream, with the debate set to play on a loop after it concludes (we'll go back later and embed a YouTube video of the proceedings so you can watch on demand):

Compared to the statewide races, there's been a relative dearth of polling done for the Eighth District contest, but last week, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released one showing Nolan leading by 11 percentage points. Over the summer, the same pollsters had Nolan only leading by two, so the latest survey prompted Dems and the Nolan camp to boast that they're leaving Mills in the dust.

Will Mills be able to close the gap as a result of a strong performance today? Perhaps more importantly, how will his hair look? Stay tuned here and find out.
