Election and social media

Social media is playing an ever growing role in the election process.@

The Obama campaign mastered it in 2008, and now it has gone to a new level.

19 Action News Reporter Paul Orlousky had a one-on-one interview with Mitt Romney in Mansfield on Monday. He solicited questions on facebook. One of the people who responded was the Obama for President Regional Campaign Manager. Included was a list of pointed questions, video links and news articles.

Orlousky says this is the first time he had ever been lobbied on how to question a candidate, by his opponent. After the event, he got another e-mail, suggesting what he should think about the speech.
