Candidate Challenge: Chris Dodd


Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

At the CNN/YouTube debate this summer, I had a chance to catch up with U.S. Senator Chris Dodd in the spin room to hear his take on our voting system. He hasn’t yet responded to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge, but we’ll put this clip up in the meantime.

We’ve asked all candidates to respond by October 31st, so let’s see what happens. We’re off to Larimer County, Colorado on Friday to check out a place where, in 2004 147,112 out of 157,903 people voted. Then to Iowa to see if we can bring the challenge to the candidates.
