The two Democratic candidates running for the U.S. House 12th Congressional district in Pennsylvania met for a debate Thursday night. 

Among the reasons Judy Herschel said she’s running in the Democratic primary is to be a voice for the community on topics many feel are being ignored. Those include health care, jobs, public education and the opioid crisis.

“I believe that we working individuals deserve a voice in Washington, and I’m ready to get in there and get the job done," Herschel said.
