Boston, MA – Governor Mitt Romney announced today that his innovative Internet video channels have topped 1.5 million total viewings after just 15 weeks in operation and continue to break new ground by dynamically streaming his message of change in Washington to Americans across the country.

"A major part of our effort is to make sure we're getting our message across to people who get their information in new and up-to-date ways," said Kevin Madden, Romney press secretary. "Internet video is certainly a very powerful and interactive new medium."
Mitt TV, the innovative Internet TV channel which is incorporated into the www.MittRomney.com web site, has accounted for a majority of the totals views with over 801,000 videos watched.

"We program Mitt TV much like the campaign's own television network," observes Madden. "Most of Mitt TV's content is original, and cannot be viewed anywhere else. Mitt TV offers voters a unique opportunity to spend as much time as they want with Governor Romney, hearing his views direct and unfiltered."
