I have a nephew Alex in Colorado. I've only met him a couple of times as he was already an adult by the time I married his aunt, and he has always lived in a different part of the country. This story came from my wife who is staying with her sister (Alex's mother) in Denver so she can work for the Obama campaign in a swing state.
Alex got a phone call: "Are you aware that there is an election for senator this year between Bob Schaffer, the Republican, and Mark Udall, the Democrat."
"Yes, I am."
"Have you decided which way you will be voting yet?"
"Not really. I'm sort of a centerist."
"Would you like to have the candidates come over for dinner at your house and try to persuade you?"
"We're making a TV show with the candidates, and we'd like to show them having dinner at the house of an undecided voter. Would you be interested?"
So Alex got to have dinner with the candidates while his wife tried to keep their young kids quite in the background. The show will air within the next week. I'll try and get more details when I can, including the important one - which way Alex is going to vote.
