David Craig campaign’s puzzling Twitter activity

The following retweet was made today by the David Craig campaign:


I asked a source close to the Craig campaign for comment on why the campaign might have made this retweet and the source had no clue. It seems odd that a candidate for governor would make a retweet of a tweet originally made two days ago regarding a federal issue in another state (the Bundy Ranch situation.)

Follower numbers are not the most important statistic on any social media platform. However, the Craig campaign does have 1233 followers on Twitter. That compares to 648 followers for Ron George, 1178 for Larry Hogan, and 3519 followers for Charles Lollar. Democratic gubernatorial follower counts on Twitter are: 10.4K followers for Anthony Brown, 4,824 for Doug Gansler, and 5393 for Heather Mizeur.

By comparison, congressional candidate Dan Bongino has almost 18,000 followers on Twitter. My personal twitter account has almost 5100 followers while The Quinton Report has over 8100 followers.

I’ll look more at the campaigns on social media in the coming weeks.
