Gregory Chase, a 27-year-old hedge fund manager from Nashua, N.H., placed an ad in a dozen newspapers offering NBC $1 million if the network lets former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel participate in Tuesday night's Democratic presidential primary debate.

NBC made a decision two weeks ago that Gravel could not participate — citing that only candidates who had raised $1 million could participate in the debate.

Chase talks with Robert Siegel.
