The Great U.S. Senate Tweetoff

The hardworking staff at Campaign Outsider has, of course, been following all the major candidates in the race for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the death of Ted Kennedy.

Here’s the tally from the past 24 hours:

Alan Khazei (D-140 Characters) – 12 tweets

Steve Pagliuca (D-GOP) – 5 tweets

Martha Coakley (D-Emily’s List) – 5 tweets

Mike Capuano (D-Ted K) – 3 tweets

Scott Brown (R-American Idol) – 1 tweet

    Ahh… Khazei going for the restaurant vote.

    And we thought that campaigns had been dumbed-down as far as they could.

    This does not bode will for the electorate.
