The Candidate

Story/Video posted October 3, 2018 in News by Emily Akers


Marc Friedenberg juggles a lot. Not only is he a professor of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State University, but he is a father, husband, and he is running for congress.

A first time candidate, he is running as a democrat and is receiving more support in State College than he is in the surrounding rural areas.

Friedenberg spends the majority of his time fundraising, working with volunteers, and going to speaking engagements.

Friedenberg lost the election on November 3rd, 2018. He was unable to rally the support of enough voters in State College to overcome the Republican votes from outlying areas.
