U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran, who is running for the Senate, announced today that he is launching a House YouTube Web site so Kansans can “know about the work I am doing on their behalf.”
His opponent in the Senate race, U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt, set up a similar site nearly year ago. Mostly, the sites feature video of the congressmen making speeches on the House floor. In just under a year, Tiahrt’s site has gained 14 subscribers and has had 461 channel views. Moran started his site March 18; by Friday morning, it had 46 views. Both Moran’s campaign and Tiahrt’s campaign set up YouTube sites last year. By Friday, Moran’s had seven subscribers to Tiahrt’s four.
