Pandora Now An Outlet For Candidates -- Sky Arnold

Nashville, Tenn --- In ten years as a State Representative Janis Sontany spent a lot of time setting political signs.

Thursday afternoon she was busy hammering several in for her friend and boss, County Clerk Candidate Brenda Wynn      

"This is just one way to try to get the message out she's running for re-election," said Sontany.

This year though more and more candidates are looking beyond signs to get their message out.

The GOP US Senate Primary in particular is seeing new types of online campaigning.

Senator Lamar Alexander has two ads running on music site Pandora.

His opponent Dr. George Flinn is campaigning on Google Hangout and fellow candidate Joe Carr has been running ads on Facebook.

Tennessee Republican Executive Director Brent Leatherwood says it only makes sense for candidates to start focusing on this type of campaigning considering how often voters are on their phones and tablets.

"Voters nowadays are just as likely to get their news stopped at a stoplight than they are picking up the local newspaper," said Leatherwood.
