Thus asks the Missoula Independent, in an article by John S. Adams, available online. The article is based on a birthday party for Jon Tester, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, so most of the bloggers present were from that side of the political spectrum -- but the article is broader than that:
Democrats across the country are taking notice of the new power-shifting movement within their party. The netroots are doing a better job of organizing grassroots support and framing issues than many highly paid political consultants, and they’re doing it for almost nothing. In a Montana U.S. Senate campaign that could see spending top $10 million (most of that coming from Burns’ war chest) Tester has embraced that movement and is relying heavily on the netroots to help him defeat the incumbent come November.
Hmm, no women. Interesting.
