Deeds campaign rolls out web campaign on the McDonnell thesis
Today the Deeds campaign unveiled the Twitter handle “@bobsthesis” and companion blog “Bob’s Thesis,” a webpage devoted to featuring quotes from the 93 page paper and providing context by showing how what McDonnell wrote directly translated into how he voted in the legislature.
“Whether he wants to admit it or not, Bob McDonnell laid out a blueprint in 1989 that he followed for two decades in public office,” says Deeds spokesperson Jared Leopold. “This blog will allow Virginians to get the facts about McDonnell’s thesis and his record of pursuing this out-of-the-mainstream policy. We encourage voters to share the facts with their friends through our new blog, Twitter and social networks.”
The blog features a new video, “Book Parties: Reactions to Bob McDonnell and his Thesis.” This video includes footage from the book parties hosted around the Commonwealth over the last week. At these book parties, voters discussed Bob McDonnell’s thesis and explored how it impacted his votes as a legislator.
These new resources will provide the opportunity for continuous dialogue. The twitter handle “@bobthesis” will post new content daily. The posts will always include a direct link to the blog to learn more about McDonnell’s ideology and legislative record— his opposition to equal pay and contraception and his lack of support for education.
