A deeper look into Senator

Senator was built using the WordPress best practices and based on all of my working experience, I think once again I’ve done it! I’ve crafted an intuitive, easy, user friendly and future proof political WordPress theme. The usability and user experience were never neglected during the thought process and implementation of the theme. Before I thought what goes into it, I thought what you’ll get out of it. Senator also features a working donation form optimized for high conversion rates, which works beautifully with PayPal! My main purpose with this theme was to get your candidate noticed and to help him gain the winning spot.
