U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg joined the ranks of bloggers with his own official blog. Although it appears to do little but regurgitate press releases written by the GOP House Communications team and his own press secretary, it does allow comments, which is very unusual for so-called Republican leaders such as Saul Anuzis. We know he does not write on it, but hopefully he reads it so we can let him know our positions on the issues.
Cleary, this is in response to the good folks over on Walberg Watch who have done an excellent job in keeping on eye on what Walberg and Michigan's 7th Congressional District, and they are certainly holding his feet to the fire. In the short time it has been up more than 20,000 people have visited the blog to make it the best news source for what’s really going on in the 7th District. Congratulations.
It’s also heartening to see the excellent Democrats lining up to make Walberg a one-term Congressman like our favorite son Dick Chrysler over in the 8th Congressional District.
