AL Gov Candidates Now Online
Of course campaigns aren't won or lost on the basis of their websites, but an able web operation can recruit volunteers and secure fundraising that might not have come through the conventional campaign structure.
Also, political websites are increasingly driving the debate during a campaign. An effective campaign website or partisan blog can instantly react to current events, defend their candidate against attacks, or even place their opponent on the defensive all without having to go through a media filter or an expensive advertising campaign.
The 2004 presidential race and the more recent Virginia governor's race demonstrated some of the ways the internet can be used on behalf of a candidate or cause. Hopefully candidates for Alabama office will attempt to yoke the potential of the internet and usher Alabama politics into the digital era.
