Jimmy Farris, former congressional candidate and current Democratic candidate in House District 16 (Boise): I was asked recently why my campaign isn't super active on social media like some other campaigns. It's simple: No amount of "copy and paste" FB posts can make up for real work on the ground in a campaign. It might look good, but it's not very effective. Knocking on doors, making calls, and engaging voters is what matters. The reason why I don't spend much time posting every article thats already online that someone else has already posted, is because I'm out walking the district, and I'm about to knock on your door and meet you face to face. See you in the streets.
Question: Does social media serve a purpose in local/legislative campaigns in Idaho?
