RPV is hoping to tweet, facebook and blog its way to success
Day two of the Republican Party of Virginia is ready to get underway Saturday, with fights for the lieutenant governor, attorney general and party chairman expected.
On Friday, I took an in-depth look at how the Republicans are hoping to take advantage of social media and the internet to help their candidates. I spoke to Midlothian’s Mickey White, the writer of the conservative blog withbias.net. She had a seat along the special “bloggers row” set up by party officials.
I also got an assessment on the Republican’s efforts from a Democratic political internet veteran, Ben Tribbett, from the popular Not Larry Sabato blog. Tribbett is actually in Richmond for the Republican event and had some terrific insight as to the progress the opposite party is making.
You can find my story from Friday night after the jump. Check back often today for updates on the progress of the RPV Convention and I will have a complete wrap up tonight on NBC12 News at 6.
