Dem Candidate in PA Special Election Called for Middle-Class Tax Increase

Marc Friedenberg

The Democratic nominee in a Pennsylvania special election for a U.S. House seat called for a tax increase on the middle class in a video posted online.

Marc Friedenberg, a college professor who lost the election for Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District last November, is now hoping to be elected after Republican Representative Tom Marino resigned in January. Marino beat Friedenberg by 32 points in a district that went heavily for President Trump in 2016.
