nekom: f you can't afford the low cost of a basic web site, chances are you aren't going to be able to finance any sort of a campaign.
quatchi: FTFA: "Its free to set up," he said, "But we charge a flat fee for donation processing. Candidates who sign up through the Michigan Democratic Party get a discounted fee."Meh, I'm okay with this, I guess. Seems fairly forward thinking. It will help lesser known candidates in down ticket races the most I imagine.
Kevin72: I'm OK with this. I don't see why not.
nekom: Kevin72: I'm OK with this. I don't see why not.I don't see why not either, there's nothing wrong with it, but it seems to me maintaining a web page is one of the LEAST expensive things involved in a campaign.

John the Magnificent: " Hopefully they all work "BwaaaaahahahahahacoughsputterhahahahasnortI get it. It's cuz the Obamacare website dint work!Oh God... that was funny. Pure comedy gold, subby. You should be writing for Pauly Shore.
incendi: What good is belonging to a major national party if they can't even afford or are unwilling to give you even the low cost of a basic website? It could potentially (depending on actual execution) make a big difference, especially in all these small podunk elections, and isn't gonna break the bank.On the other hand, the low levels are where the crazies show up, and the internets never forget... putting policy positions on paper (er, disk) is dangerous.

Letter-stuffers come cheap, sysadmins not as much); a prefab website is always better than build-from-scratch.Campaign websites are usually just buzzword bingo with a donation button anyway - when was the last time a campaign website actually provided useful information about the candidate and their positions rather than being easily-ignored fluff?
