Alum Pipe Presumptive Nominee for 5th Congressional

Penn State alumni Michael Pipe has announced that he is the presumptive Democratic nominee for the State of Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District.

Check out Pipe’s website or visit his Facebook page and ‘become a fan’ of him. Or post embarrassing pictures of yourself from spring break on his wall. The biography on his website, states that Pipe currently works in State College with his wife, Ashley. It also sounded kind of like it was written by his mother.

Pipe is a Democrat, running in a district that has traditionally been more right-winged. The district includes towns such as DuBois, Lock Haven, State College, and Bellefonte, all of which stood out because of the courts and colleges. And it is also the largest of all the Pa. Representative districts.

Currently, “GT,” or U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson reigns over the 5th district and he will certainly be looking to retain his title. He has already started making people in the district aware of and annoyed by his presence. You can check out his reelection literature on his Friends of GT website or follow him on Twitter.
