Watch live stream of tonight's Berman-Sherman debate

bermanshermanRGB_585.jpgDemocratic Reps. Brad Sherman and Howard Berman are facing off at 7:30 p.m. at Temple Judea in Tarzana. Republican Mark Reed is also taking part — in fact he kind of gets featured billing as the outlier in the race for the heavily Democratic 30th district. Sponsor the Jewish Journal of Southern California will be streaming the event on the paper's website.

Tribe Media Corp. publisher and editor-in-chief (the Journal's parent) Rob Eshman, staff writer Jonah Lowenfeld — he writes the weekly's Berman v. Sherman blog — and LA Observed's Bill Boyarsky will be tossing the questions. Boyarsky is also a columnist for the Journal. He posted about the upcoming debate here at LA Observed a few days ago.

News of the day: Sen. Barbara Boxer announced today that she has chosen a side —————— Berman. She cited a mailer by Sherman that tries to connect Berman to the deadly 2010 San Bruno gas pipeline explosion, via campaign contributions from Pacific Gas and Electric. You might remember that a week ago at the state Democratic convention, the two incumbent Democrats got so nasty with each other that Calbuzz called the exchange "two of the most bitter political speeches in memory."
