Raising Kaine, also referred to as RK, was a leading liberal political blog in Virginia. It functioned as a group blog and community forum for Virginia netroots activists, whose efforts are primarily directed toward helping to elect Democrats and other liberals and progressives in Virginia and nationally. The blog is now defunct. At its peak, RK had an average monthly traffic of about 80,000-100,000 visits. As with many leading state and local blogs, RK runs on the SoapBlox software. In late 2008, the blog ceased operations. Its content remained archived until sometime in 2011.

dbo:abstract
  • Raising Kaine, also referred to as RK, was a leading liberal political blog in Virginia. It functioned as a group blog and community forum for Virginia netroots activists, whose efforts are primarily directed toward helping to elect Democrats and other liberals and progressives in Virginia and nationally. The blog is now defunct. RK was a popular example of a collaborative blog, offering comment and diary posting privileges to its visitors. RK was founded by Lowell Feld and Eric Grim in January 2005 with one of the main goals being to help "raise" Democratic Lieutenant Governor Tim Kaine to the position of Governor of Virginia. (The term "raising Cain" is an informal term for causing trouble.) In addition, the blog aimed to help elect other Democrats in Virginia, while promoting progressive causes and values. At its peak, RK had an average monthly traffic of about 80,000-100,000 visits. As with many leading state and local blogs, RK runs on the SoapBlox software. In late 2008, the blog ceased operations. Its content remained archived until sometime in 2011. (en)
