AFCYR November Meeting with Special Guest — Eric Wilson

When: Monday, November 17, 7pm
Where: Hard Times Cafe, Clarendon
Eric Wilson led Ed Gillespie’s digital effort in what became the most surprisingly close Senate race of the 2014 cycle.
Under Wilson’s leadership, the Gillespie campaign effectively used social media to bring the race within just one point.
Though Gillespie was ultimately unsuccessful, there has been much written about how his team was able to use Facebook to micro-target and turn out voters.
POLITICO had this write-up: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/11/they-like-me-they-really-like-me-112731.html
Eric Wilson will be sharing his insights from Gillespie’s campaign and taking questions about the use of technology in future Republican campaigns.
Additionally, we will hear from newly-RE-elected County Board Member John Vihstadt and candidate for RPV Chairman John Whitbeck.
Complimentary nacho bar.
Hope to see you there.
