Ms. Cahill Goes to Washington

Tierney Cahill, a sixth-grade teacher from Reno, took up a challenge from her students that has resulted in a run for Congress this November. Students in Cahill's civics class argued that it takes a million dollars to run for Congress. Ms. Cahill disagreed, saying that anyone could run for high political office, no matter how much money, power, or influence they had. From member station KUNR in Reno, Brian Bahouth reports.
