Mike Lux Wins Air America Contest

Well, it was a fun distraction for a couple of weeks, but Open Left’s Mike Lux has won Air America’s “Favorite Progressive Blogger” contest. I came in second, which is pretty damn good considering I didn’t know about the contest until I was a semi-finalist! Congratulations, Mike!

After five weeks of competition, dozens of tweets, emails, and blog posts — the time has come to announce the winner of the Air America Cruise Contest. While only one contestant could win the claim to fame as Air America’s favorite progressive blogger, it has been an amazing experience to see all the support that every nominee for this contest received from their friends, fans and family as well as Air America readers. But after weeks of voting and commentary, the final winner has been chosen to go on the seven-day Air America Cruise through the Mexican Riviera. The winner is…Mike Lux from Open Left!

Thanks very much to all of you for your supportive Tweets, Facebook entries, and blog posts. I feel the love.
