U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko, D-Amsterdam, and Glenville Republican Bob Dieterich are going to let their campaign Twitter accounts do their talking for them this afternoon.

The two candidates for the 20th Congressional District, which includes Montgomery, Schenectady, Albany, Rensselaer and Saratoga counties, will participate in a Twitter debate at 3 p.m. The debate will be moderated by @Poozer87, with the candidates answering questions under the handles of @RepPaulTonko and @Dieterich2012. The entire debate will be RT'd by @GazettePolitics and @dgazette.

Responses will also be posted below in an updated Storify feed and the candidate's responses can be found on a Twitter list too.
