    About Campaign Web Review

Campaign Web Review will examine the use of the Internet by political candidates, campaigns and organizations, activists and the media. Our ongoing goal is to promote a better understanding among the press, political professionals, and the public of the growing influence of the Internet in politics. We also hope to provide insight into new techniques and methods that will define (and re-define) success in this medium, and shape coverage for many cycles to come.

CWR will seek to highlight the ways the Internet is being used in and around politics, and provide perspective on the positive (and negative - if any) impact of this medium on the electoral process. We will look at how presidential campaigns, parties, advocacy groups and others are using the Web to communicate, organize, and mobilize. CWR will also profile congressional, gubernatorial, initiative, and other campaigns in which the Internet plays a key role in the campaign strategy.

Campaign Web Review was launched in 1998 when three leading experts in Internet campaign strategies and political science came together and offered a free, bi-weekly newsletter that examined examining the use of the Internet in political candidate and initiative campaigns. One of the original editors, Shabbir Safdar, has graciously allowed us to continue using the site to provide useful commentary during this cycle. The new Campaign Web Review is not in any way affiliated with the original editors, but is designed to carry on their mission.
