Friday after Tuesday’s election, the Chicago Tribune published a story about the Bill Prim-Andy Zinke Sheriff’s contest.
At one point far into the article reporter Bob McCoppin focused on the impact of bloggers.
Lou Bianchi answered,
“Did bloggers have an effect? Of course they did.
“There’s no question that if (everyone) didn’t do their part, Bill would not have won.” [Emphasis added.]
“They certainly helped, because we had a difficult time with the mainstream media getting our message out.”
The real credit, Prim, in my opinion, rightly focused upon was his 300 volunteers.
