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.

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.UPDATE: Questions were raised when the picture was taken, Coloradopols state 12:33 pm, half hour after start of 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.

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.
