With the presidential debates in full swing, WPSU-FM will shift focus for one hour on a contest that hits closer to home. Two-term Republican incumbent Glenn Thompson and Democratic challenger Charles Dumas face off in the race for the 5th Congressional district. Who are the candidates? What have they accomplished? And what do they stand for? WPSU’s Patty Satalia begins the hour with Democratic challenger Charles Dumas--and we’ll be back in the second half of our program to talk with Congressman Glenn Thompson who is seeking a third term in office.

The interview with GT was entertaining. 

1) Apparently, sloppy environmental regulations that enable antiquated power plants is the only way retirees can afford 6.5 cent per kilowatt-hr electricity.  If that’s the case, why don’t we allow retirees to pump there sewage into open ditches and let them drill wells anywhere on there lots?  That will also reduce their costs.

2) Mr. Thompson announced a new voting law for Pennsylvania.  Unfortunately, he’s as incorrect about that as he was on coal.  A provisional ballot will only be issued is you don’t have any form of printed ID (not photo…..but printed like your voter registration card) and are unknown by the poll workers.
