Dave Evanson & Sedo Lock Up Another Political Domain Name

According to a post on his Facebook wall and Twitter account, Sedo  broker Dave Evanson is now the exclusive domain broker for Campaign.com. I don’t have details about the asking price, but it would seem like the perfect domain name for a political campaign consulting firm or strategist, especially with the contentious 2012 election.

Evanson and Sedo seem to be locking up political domain names just as the 2012 elections are dominating the news. A few months ago, Evanson scored the exclusive brokerage agreement on TeaParty.com, and it looks like he is making strides to get it sold. Just last weekend he  announced  “I’m in New Hampshire today and tomorrow for the debates and will be talking about the power of teaparty(.)com.”

The registrant of Campaign.com is listed as domain financing company Domain Capital, although I don’t know if the company is selling it or if another entity owns it. In doing some historical Whois research, it appears that at one point the same company may have also owned Democracy.com, which is listed for sale at Buy Domains for $1.75 million. The current registrant of Democracy.com also seems to be Domain Capital.

Descriptive political domain names are valuable assets since politicians, PACs, and other organizations spend hundreds of millions of dollars on elections every year. A good domain name is a one time cost that can continue

  1. I’d be suprised if a political super pac with deep pockets doesn’t grab it – especially with the changes in campaign financing I heard on the news earlier today – with McCain complaining about the allowing 10 individuals to donate 10 mllion each – or something to that effect. (I think he was referring to an older desicion about reversing imitations – but either way) I’d be surprised if it didn’t fetch 2 million.
