This is a race I am very interesting in following. Raskin has a clear advantage to take Van Hollen’s seat but I like what I am seeing from Cox. He has a big hill to climb but there is a lot of time between now and November. Interested in the June evaluation? CLICK HERE

- Raskin – Added the most new Twitter followers of all candidates over the past month. Raskin also continues to hold a significant online outreach advantage over all other candidates in MD08.
- Cox – Added respectable numbers of new followers on Facebook and Twitter over the past month. One piece of advice I can provide – follow more people and companies on Twitter within your district. It can only help with your online outreach on that platform.
- Wunder – Still no official campaign website (disappointing). Added an OK number of new followers over the past month.
- Wallace – Lead all candidates by adding over 260 new Facebook followers. The Twitter account is still very lacking in adding new followers…one recommendation: unlink your Facebook and Twitter accounts. HERE IS WHY
I am not reporting the engagement numbers in July. Let’s be honest…this is the slow part of the campaign season and I expect numbers to be lower overall for many candidates. I will start reporting engagement numbers in August and continue updating those numbers through the General Election. In August I will start picking an online outreach leader in each race.
Of course the reality of followers, likes, and subscribers does not mean a lot when it comes down to voting in the end, but it can show trends in a campaign cycle and makes a great resource for following all of the candidates.
