Running for Congress in 2018 was the honor of a lifetime. I'm thankful for every single person who turned out to vote, gave their time and talent to our campaign, and shared their ideas for a brighter future here in Pennsylvania. The energy that I saw was humbling and inspiring.

That's why I'm excited to announce that I will seek the Democratic nomination for Congress in Pennsylvania's 12th District.

Following Tom Marino’s resignation, Governor Wolf will call a special election to fill the seat. When that happens, I will work harder than ever to earn the right to be your representative.

You deserve a representative in Congress who will show up for you.

You deserve a representative who’s accountable, honest, and hard-working.

You deserve a representative who will fight for your jobs, your healthcare, your kids' education, and our environment.

I am committed to being that representative for you, and never quitting when the going gets tough.


P.S. - I couldn't be prouder of the work my campaign team did in the November election. My campaign manager Claire Gray and I could use your help again:

Great opportunity here: https://extension.psu.edu/toss-your-hat. In PA-12, I see sessions in Wellsboro on Jan.24, Lewistown on Jan. 28, Mountoursville on Feb. 6, Bellefonte (Centre County) on Feb. 11, and Tunkhannock on Feb. 13. And for whatever it’s worth, I’m happy to talk through my experience as a candidate with you, too (marc@marcforpa.com or 814-409-7470).

Meet Marc

Marc Friedenberg is not a career politician. He’s an instructor at Penn State’s College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST), a devoted husband to his wife Becky, and a caring father to his two young daughters, Claire and Molly. He’s also a lawyer, and before he returned to the classroom as an educator, he sued the big Wall Street banks that caused the financial crisis, using his expertise with technology to prove that they had committed fraud.

Marc made his name locally as a healthcare activist. He took a stand when Tom Marino and the rest of our corrupt Congress tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would have thrown tens of thousands of our friends and neighbors off their health insurance in exchange for tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy and fatter profits for health insurance companies. Marc created a group called PA-5 Truth and Action, leading the charge locally as part of the successful national effort to defeat the ACA repeal. Now he’s ready to take the fight for justice to Washington for all of us.

“Healthcare is a human right. You deserve a Congressman who will fight for your family’s health, not corporate profits or a personal payday.”

Focused on Pennsylvania—not Washington.


Marc supports the Fight for $15. He supports union workers fight against so-called “right-to-work” laws, and will invest federal funds in infrastructure projects like rural broadband and solar energy in PA-12.


Marc will make investing federal money into public education a top priority, especially in our rural areas, and secure federal funding for our district’s higher education system, including our vocational and community college.


Marc supports a Medicare-for-all, single-payer national health insurance system. He will invest federal resources to fight the opioid crisis in our district and strengthen our rural community health centers.


Marc believes that clean air and water are a right for all human beings, not a privilege for the rich. Marc wants to invest in clean energy, like wind and solar and put people to work building and maintaining it.
