Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 17, 2010
Leading conservative political website, RedCounty.com, announced today the addition of Chris Widener, former Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Washington, as the new editor of its King County blog.
“We are extremely pleased to have someone as accomplished as Chris join us” said Chip Hanlon, President of Red County. “We’ve felt for some time that we have a truly dynamic a group of conservative writers in Washington. Adding someone like Chris in this role not only confirms in our minds that we can repeat the enormous success we’ve had in Orange County, California, around the country—but that we will complete our mission of becoming a truly national network of local conservative political coverage,” he continued.
Chris Widener is an accomplished writer, a featured contributor to SUCCESS Magazine and author of twelve books including a NY Times and WSJ best-seller. He is also one of the most sought-after speakers on leadership and influence in America today. In addition Widener is the founder of Positively Republican, the largest Republican Facebook group with 187,000 fans.
Chris has a vision to make Red County King County the premier place for Republican politics online. He will maintain the past commitment to bloggers but will also be bringing on elected officials and thought leaders from the Puget Sound Region as contributors.
"I am excited about the opportunity with Red County. I intend to bring in a diverse group of writers so that the Republican Party and Conservative movement can get the most out of the free flow of information and the exchange of ideas. I want Red County/King County to be the hub of Republican digital discussion in the state of Washington!"
