Russell Brown, David Orentlicher and John Barnes face off with the bloggers. That's the back of my head there in the picture.
The blogger forum I put together was today. Dr. David Orentlicher (Incumbent - House district 86), John Barnes (House district 89), and Russell Brown (Senate district 31) all sat down with eight local blogs to talk about progressive politics in Indiana. Mike Kole (Libertarian - Secretary of State) had to cancel at the last minute (for a good reason) and Susan Fuldauer (House district 88) didn't show up (although she's since e-mailed me and apologized).
Bloggers who attended were: Steph Mineart of A Commonplace Book, Gary Welsh of Advance Indiana, Don Sherfick of bilerico.com, Bil Browning of bilerico.com, Rob Harrington of Confessions of a Hoosier Democrat, Manfred of ManfredEye, Kelly (Kaj) Jordan of Resisting Inertia, Ben Berg of Stallio!'s Way, and Jennifer Wagner from Taking Down Words.
Bloggers Rob Harrington, Ben Berg and Jennifer Wagner listen to the candidates during the blogger forum.
I'm pretty sure that most of you visit these blogs every day. Don't you? *grins* Some of them already have posts up about the event (A Commonplace Book, Advance Indiana, ManfredEye, and Stallio!'s Way) and a couple have even promised more to come! Everyone asked interesting and pertinent questions and I don't want to steal anyone's thunder, so I'm going to focus in on my particular question and let everyone else talk about their own experiences.
