If this year's election was held only on Facebook, Republican Brian Dubie would be the clear winner.
His campaign announced Tuesday that it had hit 7,5000 fans on his official Facebook page. Of course, some of them might not be voters or Vermont residents, but he has outpaced his Democratic rivals in the world of social media politics.
But then you also get odd comments like this one:
BRIAN UR THE MAN and cant wait for u to be the NEXTED GOVERNER OF VERMONT U HAVE MY VOTE
Maybe it is a statement on the quality of Vermont's public schools?
