I was asked last night to work up a quote and was wondering if any of you had ever done work for a political candidate?

I know that they are likely heavy users of email newsletters so opt in list management will need to be a part of it.

Is the bandwidth use a problem when they are out trying to stir the pot politically what capacity does the site need to have.

Also I was thinking of using Drupal and CiviCRM as the backend pieces thinking that this would give some tools that they could use and ease my pin and suffering on updates. Any opinions on this?

depends are they going to serve video or audio content.

I'd avoid drupal as its descended from joomla it will run slow id sugest wordpress plus some static pages.

Perhaps I was not clear, let me rephrase the questions.

Have you ever done a site for a congressional candidate and if so what was the traffic to the site during the election cycle.

Do you have experience with Drupal and CiviCRM (DeanSpace)?

I am not looking for an alternative to this set up, I am looking for anyone that has experience using it.
