Trippi, who was the campaign manager for Howard Dean’s 2003-2004 presidential campaign, was described on the cover of The New Republic as the man who “reinvented campaigning” through his use of online technology to solicit donations and organize a grassroots movement.

Trippi had this to say about ElectionMall’s suite of campaign tools: “This online political world is still young and the Internet revolution needs great tools that are affordable to all political campaigns,” said Trippi. “ElectionMall’s wide range of tools are efficient, off-the-shelf, packages that allow campaigns to empower voters to take action.”

Anderson.

Dr. Cornfield, who is interviewed frequently about online politics by the press and speaks throughout the world at universities and professional conventions on politics and the Internet also writes a monthly column for Campaigns and Elections magazine, and was a senior research consultant to the Pew Internet & American Life Project during the 2004 election.
