[Photo Story] Pennsylvania Electoral Candidates Campaign In State College

Ahead of this year’s elections, Pennsylvania’s electoral candidates visited State College this week to raise awareness for their respective campaigns.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano held his “Restore Freedom” Tour at C3 Sports in State College Tuesday.

Before the rally started, videos and upbeat music played while an older couple danced for the crowd.

Speakers at Mastriano’s rally included Stephanie Borowicz, Pennsylvania Representative of the 76th district, far-right political commentator Jack Posobiec, and Mastriano’s wife, Rebbie. They, along with Mastriano, urged those in attendance to vote on Election Day.

People of all ages were in attendance.

On Wednesday, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman held a “Rally in the Valley” event at Old Main.

Fetterman’s campaign shouted out Phillies fans, as many attendees were dressed in Phillies gear.

The crowd gathered in support, holding various campaign signs.

In addition to Shapiro and Fetterman, Lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Austin Davis, State College Mayor Ezra Nanes, and staff of both campaigns spoke to the crowd.

Fetterman and Shapiro spoke to the crowd with passion, urging them to get out and vote.

Election Day is on Tuesday, November 8.
