Today I received a guided tour of Saxby Chambliss’ new campaign website. I must say it’s quite an improvement over the previous site.
The new site features short Flash videos of the Senator’s positions on several issues. Also available are the transcripts of each video. At the end of each video, Chambliss asks for input from the viewers. Each viewer comment will be responded to by the campaign.
Included in the issue videos is a special message about immigration reform. I was told during the debate on the Senate immigration reform bill, Chambliss himself answered the phone for a while to hear directly people’s opinion on the issue.
Other features include “Sax Facts” – more short issue oriented videos, photos, bios of the Senator and his wife, campaign, Georgia and National news clips, a volunteer signup page, comment submission form, and of course a contribution page.
The new site went live on July 3rd and they are looking for comments and suggestions for improvements. Plans are already in the works to add new features and incorporate visitor comments.
The new Chambliss website can be found here.
Oh, and Chambliss has started a You Tube account.
