Anticipating by just a couple of hours the appearance of two potential opponents at the Blogs United conference last weekend, U.S. Representative Rob Wittman gave a well-tailored presentation about the "new media" and politics to the participants, who were mostly bloggers and political activists. Wittman represents Virginia's first congressional district, which stretches from the Hampton Roads area in the south to Fredericksburg and its suburbs in the north.

As noted by Anita Kumar of The Washington Post, Wittman is a member of the Republican New Media Caucus.
Wittman spoke for about 20 minutes, followed by about 15 minutes of questions-and-answers with the audience. The video recording of his remarks (including the Q&A) is divided into five segments on YouTube.
