McDonnell Action allows users to interact, form groups, post blogs, photos and video from the campaign trail and to stay informed and active on behalf of McDonnell 24-7. It will combine the use of mobile technology, social media and online communications and will be integrated throughout the entire campaign.
Speaking about the launch of McDonnell Action, McDonnell for Governor Press Secretary, Crystal Cameron noted, “Today’s launch is yet another step in our continued effort to make this the most technologically adept campaign in Virginia political history.”
McDonnell grassroots supporters have been the heart and soul of this campaign, and McDonnell Action will increase the opportunities for them to organize others in support of Bob McDonnell for Governor.
McDonnell Action uses Ning, a create-your-own social networking application.
