HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - There’s a lot of tension and anxiety surrounding this year’s presidential election, so NBC12 wanted to switch things up a bit. NBC12′s Anthony Antoine asked random voters walking out of Pocahontas Middle School, 10 presidential trivia questions, and if they got seven of them correct, they got $100 in cash!
Three luck winners took home the money, with one of them also getting a $50 gift card to Mexico Restaurant for getting all of the questions correct.
