Steelman Leads The Facebook Primary

The G.O.P. knows it needs to play catch-up to the Democratic advantage on the web.
Here's a look at "The Facebook" primary well underway for U.S. Senate.

"Sarah Steelman for U.S. Senate" has 227 members as of this writing.
Lucas Case, a staffer for her run for Governor, created the site. Many of her members are college students.
"Jim Talent for U.S. Senate" has 69 members as of this writing.
Andrew Abbott of Northwest Missouri is listed as the creator. Many of his members are from St. Louis and central Missouri.
"Draft Roy Blunt for Senate" has 35 members as of this writing.
Kristen Sanocki of Missouri State University created the site. #136th District State lawmaker Eric Burlison is a member, as is Ed Martin.

There are 314 members of a generic Robin Carnahan site, but only recent "wall" comments are encouraging a Senate run.
