A Look At PA-5th Congressional Candidates
With the presidential election only eight days away, naturally all eyes are on the campaigns of Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama. However, the impact of the 5th congressional district vote — the district State College calls home — is also included on the Nov. 6th ballot.
The candidates are Republican incumbent Rep. Glenn Thompson and Democrat Charles Dumas. Thompson, a Penn State alum hailing from rural central Pennsylvania with a background in healthcare, has served two terms in congress.
Dumas, who is currently a theater professor at Penn State, has a Yale law degree, and has enjoyed a long acting career, is entering politics for the first time.
Below is a stream to the @WPSU “Race for the 5th” debate from last week that was recently uploaded to Youtube so you can help make an informed decision at the polls on November 6.
