Brief CD-8 Website Update

Following up on the January 18 AZ CD-8 Website Post, the Jonathan Paton site is now up, although barely, consisting of three pages and minimal content. His campaign may have rushed a quick template online because someone was being obnoxious about his lack of a site over at Sonoran Alliance.

Brian Miller's site has just undergone a significant upgrade that now features slide show content and video. The site also reinforces his Facebook material. Well done.

The five sites are:

Giffords for Congress
Vote Jesse Kelly
Brian Miller for Congress
Paton for Congress
Goss for Congress

I guess Paton is so confident he does not see the need to explain why anyone would want to donate. They are just supposed to give to his campaign, because. Because he's Jonathan.

Not very great coverage in the Star today.

Am I the only one who thinks Paton is kinda like Steve Huffman?

Whatever happened to Steve Huffman anyway?

The websites are going to be a very important tool in raising money and identifying supporters and volunteers. People will forward the e-mails to others and become fans on Facebook so it is good to get those features functional as soon as possible. I'm sure that Paton will eventually have a good website.

Kelly and Miller both have good websites. I might actually prefer Kelly's and I'm wondering if it is because of that picture of him with the little boy in the vest and tie. I suppose that is his son and he is absolutely adorable.

As for Goss, I am sorry to say that his website is a visual assault. First, if you want people to read your website the text should be black on a white background (like this one.) It is the most visually soothing combination. As for the flag and the use of color, it is just visually too much and could be toned down.

Well, I just read the Star article. Is it bad reporting or is that what the debate was actually about. No questions on health care reform? No financial reform? No questions on the economy? Job Growth? Climate change? Education?

As x4mr as already noted, Goss is not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. It will be interesting to see what Paton really generates.

Jonathan Paton is no Steve Huffman as an individual person, but as politicians the comparison might make sense. It's just possible that Paton/Kelly could look like Huffman/Graf, with Miller in the role of Antoneri. If Paton thinks he has a cakewalk primary, he's in for a rude awakening.

On a side note x4mr, your "That's All Folks!" retirement post upset some people and caused others to cheer. I'm hearing that your blog is actually gaining momentum now, and certain people are really pissed off. Your last post (Outside Agency Funding) has caused some upset, and I know at least one reporter is reading "Something Else" now.

Oh, and "Flaccid Four" was spot on.

I'm glad your retirement announcement was premature. Sometimes I wonder if you did that just to fu** with certain people, but of course you would never do that.

I believe the last debate was held by a high school and featured questions asked by high schoolers, which is pretty cool. The candidates only had less than a minute for each question, so they were not able to go into a lot of detail on the answers. I'm not sure that they even got into Health Care that much, but they were asked about the Rosemont Mine and Yemen.

The debate on February 11th will allow more time for answers, and should be a pretty big deal with room for 600+
