Chad and Waldo Make the Big Time

Congratulations to Chad Dotson (Commonwealth Conservative) and Waldo Jaquith (Waldo Jaquith), who have been named contributing editors at Campaigns & Elections Magazine. They will write side-by-side columns about the intersection of technology and politics, with an emphasis on the blogosphere.

These two young men certainly deserve the recognition: They published the pioneer blogs of Virginia politics. Indeed, they were the inspiration for the Bacon’s Rebellion blog. I’d still be limited to bi-weekly newsletters if they hadn’t demonstrated what blogs could accomplish at the level of state/local politics.

Here’s what Waldo has to say. And what Chad has to say.

All I ask, guys, is this: Stay true to your roots. Don’t forget the little guys who made you famous!

    “Little guys”? Heck, Jim, you know 1000% more than I do about policy. I believe I’ll play the role of the mental midget here. If you just feed me story ideas, maybe I’ll come out of this experience relatively unscathed. 🙂
