I started out this afternoon around 4:30, but was prepared to be detained at some of the stops, to re-establish old relationships and family relations. This "old school" method of campaigning is most enjoyable, and no doubt, most effective. While, so far, I have experienced almost overwhelming support, I will not take a win for granted, nor will I underestimate my opponent. After all, he has had almost 6 months to establish ground, and unless there has been controversy or incident, he has the advantage.
Utilizing technology is certainly enhancing the campaign. From the analytics on my website, I show over a thousand hits, and references are coming from facebook, the newspaper article, and the cards I've been distributing. I can tell where the hits are coming from (locations), and what kind of device is being used - android, ipad, iphone, etc. I can also see the times of the hits. Technology is amazing, and in this instance, very helpful.
