EMAIL from Pawlenty for President
August 8, 2011

Hello Friends -

The Ames Straw Poll is only a few days away and Gov. Pawlenty is well positioned for a great showing.  We have received support from every corner of the state of Iowa and thousands of people are planning to descend on Ames August 13 to cast their vote for Gov. Pawlenty.

The Governor has already traveled over 1,480 miles across Iowa and has personally meet over 1,600 Iowans at more than 30 town halls and meet-and-greets over the last 3 weeks. This week, he is finishing strong with an 8-day "Road to Results" tour across Iowa ending at the Ames Straw Poll on August 13. The tour will cover 1,366 miles through 26 cities in 21 counties. No candidate is working harder in Iowa than Gov. Pawlenty.

So, the momentum is on our side and we are not letting up. With just under one week to go, we are asking each Pawlenty supporter across the country to help push us over the top in Ames.

Starting today we are recruiting "Ames All-Stars" to make calls from the comfort of their home to undecided Iowa voters. There is no better way to show your support for Gov. Pawlenty than to call a voter in Iowa and let them know why you support Gov. Pawlenty for President.


It's simple. Just sign up for the Pawlenty Action Center by clicking here and you will enter our Ames Calling Center. Once you are logged in, click the button to "make calls" and a step-by-step guide will walk you through each call with a short script and quick next steps. You can use your home or cell phone and you can make as many calls as you like from today through August 12.

Ok.. So let's make this more interesting.

When you login to the Ames Calling Center you will notice a "leaderboard" in the middle of the page. This board is tracking points for each person based on the number of calls you make. The top callers between now and August 12 will earn great one-of-a-kind prizes such as: signed T-Paw hockey jerseys, signed copies of Gov. Pawlenty's book, "The Courage to Stand" and much more.

Winners will be contacted after August 12 based on the final leaderboard standings so keep checking in to see your standing on the board. We welcome healthy competition and it never hurts to make a few extra calls to come out on top.

It's that easy. If you have ever asked yourself "what can I do to help?" this is it! The last few days to Ames are critical and we need our supporters across the country to call Iowans and tell them why you are passionately supporting Gov. Pawlenty for President.

Thanks again for all your support.
