The LP’s got a shiny new toy for all of us to play with.
Instead of talking about this bad boy myself, I’ll let the LP e-mailer do the job:
Last night, we officially launched the LP’s Candidate Tracker!
The Candidate Tracker (CT) is an online tool that reports on our candidates from around the nation and ranks then according to objective data. This data includes, funds raised, media appearances, opposition, etc.
We have an initial 25 candidates currently loaded into the system and over the weekend we will be adding the remaining candidates that have sent in their data.
Take a look for yourself by visiting www.lp.org/candidates. You can also access the CT from the main page of LP.org. Note that candidates are listed by highest score (their CT Score) but you can also view candidates by state.
If you’re a candidate and want to be sure you’re included, please send an e-mail to email@example.com and let us know. Our consultant, Sean Haugh, who has been a great help in collecting this information will get back to you and create your profile.
This looks like a really sweet tool that’ll help us pinpoint our funding towards credible races, quite possibly leading to some real breakthroughs in the next few election cycles. Way to go, National!
