Next week, washingtonpost.com and The Concord Monitor will host a series of live discussions with each presidential Democratic candidate.
In the press release announcing this event Tom Brown, publisher of the Concord Monitor and concordmonitor.com noted, "The Internet is becoming a major source of election information, and we are delighted to provide New Hampshire voters another way to question candidates for the Democratic nomination."
Each participating candidate will appear individually for up to 60 minutes, and will answer questions submitted by washingtonpost.com and concordmonitor.com users and selected by a washingtonpost.com moderator.
In another innovative tool by the Dean Campaign, they have created Dean Wireless, a national and local Dean wireless mobile network to communicate with each other about events, share news and information, change meetings at the last minute, and build the grassroots Dean network.
The Dean campaign is using the mobile service tool, Upoc, to create this mobile network. Currently, there are 3703 members on the national Dean wireless network.
For the last few months, Dean supporters across the country sent handwritten letters to undecided voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. The Dean website is coordinating this effort and gives directions to supporters on how to do this.
More, Lieberman ‘s online grassroots effort isn’t going so well, his meetup.com group has only 334 members.
And as for Internet fundraising (and fundraising in general), not surprisingly, Lieberman isn’t doing well at that either. Lieberman raised less than $4 million for the quarter that ended September 30, compared to Dean who raised more than $14.7 million.
