From Politico:

The Republican National Committee, moving to combat a perceived Democratic advantage on the Internet, has hired a Yahoo! executive who says his aim will be to bring the GOP message into the Internet's mainstream.

The party's new eCampaign Director, Cyrus Krohn, is a new media veteran who helped start the Web magazine Slate in 1996 and is now the director of election strategy at Yahoo!. His hire comes after a nearly six-month vacancy at the RNC that had raised concerns among some tech-savvy Republicans that the party was losing its Web edge.
