Raising Kaine Shutting Down
I don’t agree about much with them, but no one can deny the impact that Raising Kaine has had on Virginia politics and the Democratic Party, and RK’s place as arguably the most influential Virginia politics blog. While there are deep partian differences between us, we have had Raising Kaine on our blogroll and they have had us on theirs. And when we re-launched after our dispute with our server, RK was gracious enough to announce our return. Lowell has even shown up to comment from time to time in various threads.
Thus, it’s sad to see the site shut down, even if it is likely to be carried on by other RK contributors on a new blog. RK has set the standard for blogging in Virginia, and I think it’s safe to say that no other has reached it yet. Congrats to Lowell and Eric for a job well done, and hopefully we can undo all the damage they’ve done now that they’re leaving. : )
