    Some “new media strategy” oversight – Snyder’s announcement mass e-mail to Virginia Republicans failed to be formatted – it omitted the “personalized salutation” from whatever GOP database he was using, and left the placeholder entry instead, making it look like garbage.

    That sort of bang-up attention to detail is just the kind of thing people notice – and it says a lot about a guy running as the young upstart candidate who’s going to bring business savvy to Richmond.
