Voices from CPAC: RedState.com and Talking Points Memo

BY Quinn Bowman  February 19, 2010 at 3:08 PM EST

We caught up with RedState.com editor-in-chief Erick Erickson in the hallway at the Conservative Political Action Conference, which is billed as the nation’s largest annual gathering of conservatives. Erickson spoke with us about the goal of his site, how conservatives are using social media and his strategy for being based far away from Washington, where the conference is held.

We also spoke with Evan McMorris-Santoro of Talking Points Memo on the message at this year’s CPAC summit and how conservatives were quick to adopt the use of Twitter to spread their message.
