The annual progressive convention Netroots Nation just finished â€” Providence this year. Ryan was there and spoke of what made the strongest impressions.
One session that struck Ryan was on marriage equality efforts at the ballot box. He disagreed with the Maine campaign using primarily straight allies in efforts to win back the right for same-sex marriage. The campaign should be using gay couples and families, he said and wrote.
It’s not the same as being there, close enough, to hit the video. Netroots has a remarkable page with clips of each session, here.
Meanwhile, listen in to today’s show to here Ryan speak of the decline in state and local blogs, which have been so influential in recent elections, and much more.
