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.
