Rural Voters Shut Out By Money Chase

When the first annual National Rural Assembly convened in Chantilly, Virginia this year they invited all the presidential candidates to come, address the audience and talk about issues of concern to rural voters. Not a one showed up (and only three appeared via video), and organizers think it has a lot to do with the fact that people in rural areas aren't writing the big checks to candidates so candidates don't have time to meet with them. They discussed this in this segment on NPR this morning.
