The Tip of the Spear

For far too long, the Connecticut Republicans lagged behind other political organizations in the implementation and exploration of technological innovation. But with the widespread access and ease that online communications offer, there was no good reason for failing in this regard.

With the new energy of Chairman Chris Healy, and the courage of leadership willing to push the envelope of possibilities, CTGOP has moved into the digital era and surpassed many of the other political participants in the arena. The not-so-remarkable innovations of YouTube, MySpace, Twitter, and blogs are now being harnessed to promote positive change in Connecticut.

The CTGOP official blog, The Everyday Republican, was started almost four months ago to post commentary and news items from across Connecticut and the nation, as well as around the world. Since its inception, we've had thousands of readers come to the site - and we've got a regular daily readership that measures in the hundreds. For the first time in a concerned fashion, Republicans in Connecticut have a place on the web they can visit to get the news. The Everyday Republican has been incredibly successful in a short period of time, and we at CTGOP are looking to take it to the next level in the near future.

Our YouTube Channel, CTGOPNews, is increasing in popularity and quality, having already been lauded by CTLocal Politics, among others. As we make a significant investment in the technology necessary to produce higher quality videos at a faster rate, look for CTGOP to become a leader in online political videos in Connecticut.

With MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, and more, CTGOP is no longer satisfied to merely eek by when it comes to eCampaigns and New Media. We are working to become the leaders of the pack so we can distribute our message, advocate for our candidates, and to what we can to improve our state.
