This site is yet another WordPress implementation making heavy use of template files and custom scripts per page.  WordPress seems ideally suited for political campaigns and political websites for it’s simplicity and ease of maintenance.  The idea with this site was to make it look professional and make use of social technologies which politicians are starting to realize are necessary and smart.

We made heavy use of CSS  in this design, as well as moderate JavaScript (which means, IE6 users need not apply).  We departed slightly from the original design I supplied, but I think we arrived at a decent compromise.  One of the goals was small image sizes, so PNG’s are used where they are needed, but 92% JPG’s are used for the big stuff.  The navigation bar at the top was intended to look inset, and to show the capitol building in the background through itself.  Thank the Internet gods for transparent PNG’s right?

Feel free to let me know what you think (good or bad).  Some of you are smarter than I am, and your (constructive) feedback is always appreciated.
