What's Going On: Roofers, politicians have lots in common if you look closely

 They called on the phone. They knocked on doors. They sought local endorsements. They stuck signs in your yards. They launched advertising campaigns. 

And they weren’t even running for office. 

With the mass of unfamiliar numbers flashing across my phone’s caller identification, I had a flashback to the last presidential caucus. 

But instead of Mitt Romney harassing me at home, it was roofers, roofers and a few more roofers providing me with valuable information.
