Friedenberg spends day campaigning on heels of election day

With polls in Pennsylvania set to open at 7 a.m. tomorrow for the primary election, one special election race has drawn national attention after President Donald J. Trump visited the area yesterday campaigning for the Republican candidate in the race, Fred Keller.

The special election was called after Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa. resigned just after being re-elected to his fifth term.

The Democratic candidate, Marc Friedenberg, spent yesterday, along with his supporters, canvassing neigborhoods and making phone calls to rally support for his candidacy.

“Talking to people and getting them out to vote is the only effective way of campaigning,” a statement on the candidate’s website stated.

It continued by saying, “While Trump supporters are at the rally, we’re going to knock on doors, and make calls to everyone who is still home.”

Friedenberg, who is a native of northeast Philadelphia, now teaches classes on cyber law and the global economy at Penn State University.

He dubbed his campaign, “Love Trumps Hate,” and had received endorsements from the state AFL-CIO and Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey, among others.
