Collage image shows the rear view of a 29-year-old man, Jeff Smith, wearing
khaki pants and a blue oxford shirt. He holds a basketball in one hand and a
cell phone in the other, looking down a road at the Capitol Building looming
large in the distance, he stands between a giant pair of man’s legs in
pinstripe slacks.  Text reads: Can a 29-year-old “political nobody” with no prior public office experience win the Missouri Democratic House primary over a leading incumbent?

CAN MR. SMITH GET TO WASHINGTON ANYMORE? follows one of 2004’s most surprising races as a grassroots campaign threatens to shake up the political establishment.
