Throughout history mass media has affected political campaigns. Through radio, television, and most recently the Internet, candidates have used these media as a means of spreading political beliefs. We investigated the historical aspects of the earlier two media, and then applied the Internet to a Congressional campaign to determine its effects on the election. By examining our case study, we concluded that the Internet, although beneficial to a campaign, has not reached the magnitude of influence of its predecessors.
