The 2012 presidential election will be decided by grassroots efforts and successful social networking.
At least, that's what the candidates for the state Republican Party chair argued during a debate last Thursday at Braselton's Police and Municipal Building, hosted by the Jackson County Republican Party.
Shawn Hanley and Tricia Pridemore challenged current party chair Sue Everhart over her use of technology in past elections, saying the state GOP needs to do better with Twitter updates, Facebook posts and making YouTube videos.
The three are vying for the volunteer post that will hopefully lead Georgia to a greater Republican victory in the 2012 presidential election than the five-point margin won by Barack Obama in 2008.
But Republican gains in every major state seat during the last election, Everhart admitted the technology for previous elections wasn't what it could have been.
