For better or worse, the U.S. political season is here, but thanks to WordPress.com VIP, we now know that WordPress is the most commonly used platform for this season’s campaign sites.

For this season alone, WordPress is powering 35% of U.S. Congressional races, 40% of U.S. Senate races, 44% of Gubernatorial races, 41% of state political parties, and both of the 2012 major political party conventions.

One of the major draws for WordCamp San Francisco is the State of the Word, an address to the entire WordPress community from Matt Mullenweg, who shares some favorite moments from WordPress’s past and some looks into its future.
