U.S. Congresswoman Jahana Hayes (D-CT) addresses media on the Rebuild Americas Schools Act on March 3, 2020 in Washington, DC. The act makes a $100 billion investment to both help repair and improve the physical and digital infrastructure of public schools.

The 5th District is considered Connecticut’s most competitive Congressional seat, and this year’s race is already a "heated" one, taking on issues like inflation, education, abortion and race.

This hour, we sit down with incumbent Congresswoman Jahana Hayes, who’s running for reelection against Republican George Logan. She touches on these topics, and takes your questions.

George Logan is set to join the program on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

Rep. Hayes and Logan will participate in Connecticut Public's debate series in collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Connecticut (LWVCT) on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 8pm.
