Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott has represented Seattle and its suburbs in Congress since 1989. He faces a Republican challenger, attorney Ron Bemis, at the polls in November. Both candidates join us in our studio for a discussion of the issues at hand in Washington's 7th District.

Also this hour, we'll get an update on violence in Syria as it crosses the border into Lebanon. Plus, KUOW's Ashley Ahearn sends a postcard from a West Seattle apple harvest, and Michael Fagin joins us with a hike to match the week's wet weather.
