Penn State to Host U.S. 5th Congressional District Debate

On Saturday, Oct. 15, WPSU Penn State will host “Race for the 5th,” a U.S. House debate between four-time incumbent Republican Representative Glenn Thompson and Democrat Kerith Strano Taylor.

In 2014, Rep. Thompson defeated Taylor with 63.6 percent of the vote (115,018 votes) in the general election for the 5th congressional district, which is comprised of Centre County and 15 other counties.

The 60-minute debate will be held at the WPSU studios at Innovation Park at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6. The debate will be moderated by WPSU senior producer Patty Satalia, is free of charge, and is open to the public. The public is asked to register on WPSU’s website before arriving. Those who aren’t able to attend in person can tune into WPSU-TV, WPSU-FM (91.5 FM), or watch the live stream online.

If you wish to ask a question to either representative, they can be sent into WPSU and may be featured during the live debate by submitting them to the online form.
