First off, all of the moderators here at Red Racing Horses would like to thank everybody for an amazing three months! Our traffic is phenomenal for such a new website, and we could not have done it without all of the readers and contributors who visit RRH each day.
This website took some planning to come together: finding front-page posters to religiously post a roundup, buying and building the website, advertising and building a brand, and on and on. We have invested significant time and effort into this work; nevertheless, we are also indebted to another website for our start.
So, we would like to take this moment to thank Swing State Project for helping RRH get to where we are today. Many of us were (and some still are!) avid commenters at SSP, and the editors there were very encouraging of this project. It is apparent that many of our commenters and readers frequent both websites, and the level of crossover between the two is healthy for everybody to minimize their biases.
Of course, SSP is now moving over to Daily Kos in its daily operations. We wish them all the best in that endeavor, and I for one will still be reading and occasionally commenting on their daily postings. I am confident that David and the other editors are working their hardest to maintain the SSP community at their new address.
Nevertheless, it appears that some have been skeptical of SSP’s move to Daily Kos. For those, I would first encourage you to have a bit of faith and see what happens. However, we would also invite you to take this opportunity to browse our website and see what Red Racing Horses has to offer! We are working to build our niche in the world of horserace politics, and we would like you to be a part of it. It is true that we cover elections and politics from an explicitly Republican perspective; however, we invite readers of all political stripes to participate in our discussions and feel welcome.
