King Campaign Launches Anti-Saqib Blog!

In a first for Montgomery County politics, Senator Nancy King's campaign has launched "a Blog dedicated to responding to Delegate Saqib Ali's distortions and negative campaign." It's ironic that Ali, who has long been known for his use of online media, is now under heavy attack by it.

The blog, which carries King's authority line, has no publicly accessible site traffic monitor. But the number of visits it receives is meaningless. It is only intended for two readers: Ali and his campaign manager. King's campaign is evidently hoping that their opponents will become so enraged and obsessed with this blog, and so consumed by responding to it, that they will be distracted from the nuts and bolts of their own campaign. It's a great strategy and we will see if it works.
