In a sure sign blogs are further spreading of blogs amongst the lower levels of the US political process, Minneapolis mayor R.T. Rybak unveiled his campaign blog as part of his re-election campaign for Mayor.

Pioneer Press reports that the move is surprising and the use of blogs as an electoral tool is rare among politicians.

“My hope with this campaign is that, using tools like the Internet and grass-roots organizations, we can build an organization that will not only help me get re-elected but continue to build a base for a new Democratic party,” Rybak said when launching the blog.

The blog is hosted on Google’s Blogger.
