Chip won this week’s “Ten Buck Friday” poll, beating out Senate candidate Marco Rubio of Florida and eight other great candidates from around the country. As a result, Chip is now being promoted on at least 65 blogs.
The idea of Ten Buck Friday is to harness the power of new media to bring national attention and a fundraising boost to conservative candidates who win the weekly poll.
“The enthusiasm shown by our supporters in helping us win this is really inspiring,” Chip said. “It’s a testament to the grassroots nature of our campaign. This same enthusiasm and grassroots network is how we are going to win in November.”
Chip was off to a strong lead early in the week but saw it narrowed to just a handful of votes yesterday just hours before the poll closed. Chip supporters rallied by tweeting messages, sharing links to the poll on Facebook, and emailing their friends. It was a photo finish, with Chip winning by just 2.3% of the total vote.
