Caleb Rowden, Republican candidate for 44th district state representative race, glances at cameraman Justin Anderson during the production of a television commercial for Rowden, a portion of which was filmed around the dinner table in Bill and Norma Watts' home Oct. 2 in Columbia. "If I was talking to senior citizens, that's probably where I'd be," Rowden said referring to the dining room-turned-studio, complete with a plate of cookies and coffee. It was one of several locations filmed in an attempt to reflect the 44th District. The Wattses have been friends and neighbors of the Rowden family for about 25 years and volunteered their home and time for the video shoot.
