— A Raleigh woman won the right to have dinner with Sen. Barack Obama.

Alisha Cordell is one of five campaign donors nationwide who will dine with the candidate.

“Then I started jumping up and down and was excited. Now I can tell people. I can finally say something. It still hasn't set in,” Cordell said.

Cordell said she wants to talk to Obama about investments, education and healthcare. She hopes he will have solutions that will make things easier for her children and grandchildren.
