(Bethlehem) -- Pennsylvania's junior U.S. senator is set to face voters this evening in a televised town hall.

Republican Pat Toomey will take questions at public television station WLVT in Bethlehem.

It's his second televised town hall since President Donald Trump took office.

Toomey, a conservative, was considered to be one of the nation's most vulnerable incumbents heading into last November's election but won a narrow victory for his second term.

The event is limited to 54 people, 24 of whom were handpicked by local Republican and Democratic groups.

The remaining 30 tickets were made available to the public.

You can watch the town hall on WITF-TV, starting at 7:00 p.m.
