Adam Kokesh to host Twown Hall

I know it looks like I can't spell, but turns out Adam Kokesh is holding a twown hall Oct. 19. (That's a Twitter town hall, ya'll.)

Here's how it works:

Kokesh, a Republican running for the 3rd Congressional District, will respond to questions in real time using his twitter account.

Twitter users can tweet questions to Kokesh before and/or during the event, which is from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
The campaign says Twitter users should post an update using "@AdamKokesh" somewhere in the message. There also is a hashtag for the Kokesh campaign, #k4c, if you want to search all the questions that will be asked.

Andrew Sharp, the campaign's communications director, said the campaign wants to tap into the Twitter community.

"Twitter is revolutionizing communication, from the way news is reported to how friends stay in touch. Since the world first witnessed the power of twitter during the elections in Iran, more and more people are beginning to think twice about dismissing it," he said in a statement. "Especially for those in the field of public service, utilizing new methods of communication like Twitter to stay connected will become increasingly vital in the future. That's why we've decided to host this event."

Kokesh, who announced his campaign in July, has started strong with fundraising, most of it on the Internet. Read the story I did on that for today's paper here.

He is seeking the GOP nomination in the race against U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan. The election is Nov. 2, 2010.
