Dumas ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Pennsylvania's 5th District. He was unopposed in the April 24 Democratic primary and hoped to unseat incumbent Rep. Glenn Thompson (R) in the November 6 general election.
The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in Pennsylvania in 2012 as 1 of the 10 states that could determine whether Democrats would retake the House or Republicans would hold their majority in 2013. Ohio tied with Pennsylvania for 9th on the list. On November 2, 2004, Glenn Thompson won re-election to the United States House. He defeated Charles Dumas (D) in the general election.
