Vienna, VA (PRWEB) January 25, 2010
Intermarkets, Inc. announced that the Drudge Report's daily page views jumped 40% during the Massachusetts Senate race on January 19, 2010. Republican Scott Brown captured the Senate seat, beating out Democratic nominee Martha Coakley in the special election that played out online and on social networking sites. The campaign attracted the nation's attention because of its impact on current legislation on Capitol Hill.
Brown took his campaign to the Internet including buying ads on the Drudge Report and on other sites in the Intermarkets Portfolio. Brown surpassed his fundraising goal by tapping into a large audience of independent voters on the Drudge Report and across the Web.
