POLS UPDATE: Rep. John Salazar’s campaign just sent this “secret” email to their press list, with this message from spokesperson Tara Trujillo, titled “SSSSHHHH…..”
Never start off an email with those letters or someone is bound to forward it on…
Scott must be desperately in need of back up for his Pueblo debate with John Salazar on Thursday if he is offering supporters a charter bus, free food and don’t forget… the free Tipton T-shirt!
What’s wrong Scott? Not a lot of supporters in “Salazar country,” oh, or did you mean to say Pueblo?
From my blog. Rather than link it (I hate blog-whoring), I’ll just post it in its entirety.
This email was forwarded to me this morning. Hat tip to a reader.

Subject: Scott Tipton needs your help!
We are looking for to fill a charter bus from Grand Junction to Pueblo this Thursday to rally in front of the Pueblo Community College where Scott Tipton and John Salazar will have their second and final debate.
We are hoping you guys can come along!
The bus will leave early (at 10a) and make 1 stop, in Montrose, at a location convenient to the driver and the people boarding. There is NO cost to the people and the campaign will provide meals and snacks each way. The debate itself will be first come first seated so we can not guarantee that people will get in to the debate itself. However, this is very important to have folks there to rally and show support for Scott. This is unfortunately Salazar country so to speak and we want to have as large and excited a presence as possible! So… we will want those coming via bus to be waving signs out on the road as people enter the school and show their enthusiasm for Scott! Please call or email me or refer any one you know who may be interested to my email or phone number and have them get back to me asap! We will also be giving Tipton T-shirts to each person that participates!
Please: We would like to keep this from getting spread like crazy over email and for Salazar peoples to find out so please avoid a mass email blast. Thank you! (emphasis mine)
I can’t vouch for the authenticity of the email, but we’ll make sure it doesn’t get published all over the internet, OK?
