Wow. I have to echo Jarrod. Those websites, sans Cooper, Brooks, and possibly Kincaid, are miscarriages of web design and functionality. How can one take a candidate seriously when he or she fails to utilize one of the most powerful mediums for spreading information?

Some of the candidates need to realize that neglecting your campaign website only a few shorts months before election time looks like a half hearted attempt at running for office. Judging by the websites, only Cooper, Kincaid, and Brooks take the race serious enough to put up a good website.
