Greetings Mark,

last year or so, I think it was on Independent Lens, a woman whose father was a politician at one time, decided to run for her state rep position against an entrenched incumbent;

REALLY against the odds;
I think it was in the mid-west; it was rural, small towns, etc.

The camera followed her around, a good documentary-style;
"person-to-person"; small town to small town....... and she won!

It was totally cool;
and reminded me greatly of the thoroughly grass-roots struggle and
perseverence of the folks in the NO-WeHave Opposition action.

Hello, Mark, I seldom watch TV anymore -- but I sure enjoyed seeing the show about Jeff Smith. I was glad you told Myra who told me.
