NationBuilder, GOP “tool” of choice

Historically used by political organizers of all stripes, Mashable reports that…

NationBuilder will be the exclusive campaign technology of the Republican State Leadership Committee, whose mission is to elect Republican candidates running for office at the state level across the U.S.

Through the arrangement, Republican candidates running for about 7,500 different offices will get greatly discounted access to the service. NationBuilder will provide those candidates with websites, digital organizing tools and training, access to voter data and a mechanism to share data between Republican campaigns.

NationBuilder is obviously a business, and they should be able to make independent decisions to meet their aims, but I’m sure there will be some progressive non-profits that are going to jump ship with this news.
