Previously posted on Colorado Pols  but this picture of a rally at the steps of CO's Statehouse shows how Colorado Hispanic Republicans Rally For Glorious Victory! and their ability to draw Latino voters in a battleground state.  

Now the promotion which makes it even more of a revealing moment.


TIME: 12:00-3:00PM


Michael L. Barrera Libre Initiative, Western Regional Director
Laura Boggs Director, Jefferson County School Board
Jon Caldara President of the Independence Institute
Ryan Call Chairmen of the Republican Party
Randy Corporon Chairman Arapahoe Tea Party
Frank Francone Colorado Chairman Doc Squad
Fr. Andrew Kemberling Pastor St. Thomas Moore
Trevor Loudon Author, Activist, Founder of KeyWiki
Tim Neville Colorado State Senator District 22
Molly Vogt Director, My Purse Politics, Colorado Women's Alliance
Derrick Wilburn Rocky Mountain Black Tea Party

The Board of the Colorado Hispanic Republicans:
Mimi Bell, Hugo Chavez-Rey, Carlos Klinger,
Martin Mendez, Pauline Olvera, Jeff Rodriguez,
and Tony Sanchez

ColoradoPols then says the obvious:
Something obviously happened, because there appear to be more Colorado Hispanic Republicans listed on the press advisory than actually in attendance at yesterday's rally.

It could honestly be a good thing to to see that lengthy advisory--otherwise you might get the idea that the people in the photo are all the Colorado Hispanic Republicans who, you know, exist.

Pro organizing tip: if a rally is about to send the opposite of the message you want, cancel it.

UPDATE: Questions were raised when the picture was taken, Coloradopols state 12:33 pm, half hour after start of rally
what point of the rally was pic taken?

Colorado Pols added this in the comments:

The point isn't that everyone was going to show up nor that  those listed in the announcement  were going  to be there.

The point  is that those listed in the announcement were willing to believe there were Hispanic Republicans in Denver metro that could show up.

See, faith and belief are more important than actually showing up. And that's the point. Oh, and that the pastor at St Thomas Moore was willing to meet with the household and yard staff of his congregation outside the church is kinda big, 'cause he sure isn't going to see them at STM.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
