The State of the Race on FaceBook Update #1

It's Update Time for the Facebook Project,

Here's the first update for the Facebook project wherein we look at the number of fans our local politicians have on their respective FaceBook sites. There was some controversy from last weeks initial post because all of the candidates were not included and that controversy will extend into this weeks post because many still aren't. C'est La.
