Welcome to my new blog!
With the 2006 gubernatorial race beginning to take shape, I am excited to bring my campaign into the blogosphere. Bloggers are today's Minutemen, the often-time heroes who repeatedly astound us with their ability to expose Big Media's attempts to pull the wool over the eyes of everyday citizens.
Just one example of this was Memogate, the shameful attempt by CBS news to influence the 2004 presidential election by springing an October surprise of its own in the form of a forged memo disparaging President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard. Bloggers stopped that story dead, and in doing so, they may just have changed the course of history.
Other examples are easy to find. However you choose to look at it, one thing is beyond debate -- blogging has helped level the playing field between the citizen and Big Media. With this in mind, I can tell you that it is a real pleasure to join this online world at long last with a weblog of my very own. I plan to use this blog to provide Coloradans with frequent personal updates on the progress of my campaign as I work to earn their trust and to lead our State into its brightest future.
Please check back often! I'll have lots to report during the next year and three months, as I head out on the road touring the entire State of Colorado. I hope you'll join me, online if not in person. I know that together we can make this a campaign to remember!
