Senate candidates engage in engagement

As Rick Green reported, Chris Shays now has a website. And it works, too.
But that's more, he's using it. Perhaps taking a cue from the news industry, Shays is attempting to engage his constituency by asking them to get involved in the issues. His site now features a petition on a balanced budget amendment.
But he's not the only one.
Linda McMahon, Shays' rival for the Republican Senate nomination, has a new poll, also issue-based, though in the Land of Simple Questions, this one lives in the castle: "Is the national debt too high?" Um, no?
The ancillary goal may be less engagement than data collection, as both poll and petition require a valid email address and name.

Brian K. Hill also has a website that works. He's going to surprise a few people in the US Senate primary...so it might be nice if he were included in the discussion. http://www.briankhill.com
