Few Are Chosen tells the story of a campaign for the U.S. Senate with insight and self-deprecating good humor. It’s sometimes serious, sometimes hilarious, and always true to life. People say they want honesty in a politician. Honest answers to questions about American politics great and small are part of the story-the straight scoop on what a candidate really experiences and thinks. A few samples—
•What don’t people know about politicians? What do sitting U.S. Senators and aspiring candidates talk about in unguarded moments?
•What is life like on the campaign trail? Is driving through pitch black midnight with a temperature of 25 zero to the Icebox of the Nation as much fun as it sounds? What does a stall warning on a small plane sound like?
