John Hawkins of Right Wing News has announced he is now consulting for GOP Congressman Duncan Hunter’s Presidential campaign via TCV Media. Here are details from his post at RWN:
On February 3, Nathan Tabor from TCV Media got in touch with me and asked if Iâ€™d be interested in consulting for the Duncan Hunter campaign. We bantered back and forth, came to a basic understanding that Saturday, and then finalized the deal the next day. Long story short, TCV Media brought me on board to be their point person in building up buzz for Duncan Hunter online.
Since I am a blogger whoâ€™s doing some consulting on the side, not a consultant doing blogging to get his name out there, I did attach a condition to my employment that Nathan was willing to go along with:
#1) I agreed to work a maximum of 3 months for the campaign â€” which should be, in my estimation anyway, plenty of time to give Hunter a huge boost in name recognition and prominence in the blogosphere.
Additionally, while I am working on the campaign, Iâ€™m not planning to blog about any of the 2008 Republican contenders on RWN unless a story too big to ignore hits the wires. Thatâ€™s because I donâ€™t want to come across like a shill for Duncan if I eviscerate one of his opponents or talk him up. Additionally, if Iâ€™m done by May of 2007, at the latest, itâ€™s not as if it will be too late to get in on the serious 2008 discussions.
Being a San Diego Native I wish John and Congressman Hunter the best of luck
