For a last-minute campaign opportunity, Charles Dumas, the Democratic candidate for the fifth district of Pennsylvania for Congress, decided to travel to all 16 counties that make up the fifth district in one day.
In Centre County, Dumas stopped at the Church of Christ, his second to last stop in the district.
Spending all of Election Day in a car traveling over 400 miles, Dumas said he made stops in 15 out of 16 of the counties in the fifth district, and is currently on his way to the last stop in Huntington county.
"It's been invigorating and tiresome, but extraordinarily important because I think we had a change to talk about the issues," he said.
During the day, Dumas said he heard no information concerning the election besides information about turn out at polls.
He said that turn out in certain areas has been good, but in some schools, like Clarion University, turn out seemed to be an issue.
However, Dumas had a positive attitude about the overall campaign.
"I compliment my opponent on the quality and integrity of the campaign he's run," he said. "I think we've managed to both put the issues out there for the people to have a choice."
