UPDATE: The Campaign to Defeat Obama Independence Day telethon has raised over $176,000 so far. Our goal is $250,000 — a quarter million to target four key swing states — WI, NV, OH, and MI — states Obama won in 2008 and which he is at risk of losing this election. We are beginning large scale efforts in those states, which account for 50 electoral votes. If Obama loses them in 2012, it will represent a 100 electoral vote swing for our side.

A NOTE From the folks at BLOG TALK RADIO:

Who needs network TV and other traditional media?

Joe Wierzbicki, political strategist for the Campaign to Defeat Obama pulled the numbers and reported:

We have seen that social media is the new way to get results.  BIG time.  Here are some GEE WHIZ figures to hang your hat on:

  • Over 23,000 views on the UStream alone so far.
  • The (2,700) 4271 5250 7491  11,053  11,225 (constantly updated) listeners on Andrea’s BTR Show simulcast and archive downloads.
  • More than 1,000+ Tweets to the link for the U-Stream.tv feed… amazing!
  • Viewers on KPVM-TV 46.3 yesterday in Pahrump (who went wall-to-wall with no commercial breaks so they were with the UStream audience the whole time).
  • KDWN 720 AM listeners in southern Nevada.
  • www.KDWN.com listeners all across America (and remember this was the first link we promoted for two weeks before this became a TV affair), and perhaps most importantly…
  • the viewers on VegasTV 25/Cable 14 which was simulcast on MyCool TV, and also broadcast to most TVs on in-house networks in hotel rooms throughout Las Vegas.

Not bad gang!  We’ve taken our little Radio/WebAThon model and improved on it, and the proof was in the results.

We’re going to push the rebroadcasts on TV and on UStream through Sunday – to see if we can’t still catch our goal of $250,000.
