As the Republican Party rebuilds after its defeat at the polls in November, the discussion has centered not so much on honing its message as on messaging -- on Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. In previous elections, the GOP often used technology in targeting voters more effectively than Democrats did; now the party is playing catch-up. RNC members, meeting in Washington, are scheduled to elect a party chairman on Friday ...
Chuck DeVore ... a little-known California Assemblyman and ... former aerospace-company executive has already begun contesting the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Barbara Boxer, who faces re-election in 2010, by putting much of his daily routine online.
He regularly updates his Facebook status on his BlackBerry, which automatically appears on his Twitter account, as well as on the site devoted to getting Republicans on Twitter, called topconservativesontwitter.org. (His 924 followers rank him 389th on that site.)

This should prove interesting. In the last two elections, Babs was actually not doing so well in the polls. She only won by the last-minute smearing of her opponent.
A solid candidate could beat her.
Thanks for asking. I’m in San Diego. Glad to know that Chuck already has friends and devotees in the Central Valley.
He really sunk it hilt deep into Schwartzenfrauder's pussey thinking on CA's role (make that desperate gamble) on PBS's show about CA's role in globular swarming!!!
Way to go chuck! Excise the malignancy that calls herself Boxer!! You will go very far, very fast!!!
She’s been our senator since 1993 and I can’t stand her ... 15 years of liberal sneering and feminist hijinks. I’d give my right arm to defeat her.
Based on what I've been seeing lately, he seems to be one of the wobbly ones in the legislature. If he votes for a tax increase, he can count on my non-support.
Think you have Chuck confused with someone else. Look again. Chuck’s for real. Try:
