In the wake of Lamont's stunning victory, traditional political operatives and the bloggers themselves are trying to figure out exactly how bloggers may have influenced the outcome and what role the emerging medium will play in future campaigns.
Their ranks included frustrated progressives, rank-and-file Democrats who felt Lieberman was paying too little attention to the state and voters angered by his stance on various issues, such as favoring federal intervention to keep Terry Schiavo on life support.
Tim Tagaris, Lamont's Internet communications director, worked with bloggers in a way akin to how a traditional press secretary works with the media. He said he tried to provide them with information their readers wanted, while also focusing on fundraising and volunteer recruitment, which blogs can bolster through links on their websites.
"They acted as a tremendous complement to the various traditional parts of the campaign," Tagaris said.
And since everyone and their mother is discussing it I'll pose the question here. How much did liberal blogs influence the primary? And what does the future hold?
