Nathan Goes to Washington

RICHFIELD, Minn. -- Nathan Bauer is proud of his home and he's giving a tour to his new friend.
"I call this the entertainment room," Nathan says as he shows his guest to the front of the house.
"You've got your CD's much better organized than I have my CD's," says Senator Al Franken.
That's right Senator Al Franken is Nathan's guest and new friend. The 33-year-old has developmental disabilities and met the Senator at an event with Hammer. Hammer helps people, like Nathan, live independently and realize their dreams.
"He's pretty impressive, he's a pretty impressive guy," says the Senator.
Franken is impressed with how outspoken Nathan has been as both a self-advocate and an advocate for other people with disabilities.
