St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
PolitiView.com announced today that Missourians can now access a new way to learn about U.S. Congressman Russ Carnahan’s campaign. PolitiView.com is the Web’s first video marketplace for politics, giving voters unique comparison shopping tools to help them make important political decisions.
“While candidates have certainly utilized digital media to promote their campaigns, there has yet to be a comprehensive video-centric site to bring candidates – literally side by side – for instant comparisons by voters, until now,” explained company founder and president, Susan Nightingale. “In a world where we are almost all creators and consumers of media, PolitiView is offering a space where campaigns have an instantaneous, do-it-yourself social platform for posting videos of their candidate right alongside their opponent.”
Carnahan currently represents Missouri’s 3rd congressional district, but due to re-districting, he is running in the 1st congressional district against fellow democrat incumbent Congressman William Lacy Clay, Jr. With less than a month to the primary (August 7) Carnahan’s team utilized Politiview’s “Top 10 Fast-Start Action Steps” to quickly mobilize the technology to work for them.
“We know the importance of finding the best method to connect with constituents in a constantly evolving digital space. Politiview.com provides an innovative platform to bring our campaign directly to voters,” said Carnahan Campaign Manager Maurice Henderson.
