Site Asks Republicans To "Draft Roy Blunt" is a website that's recently been created to help rally support for the U.S. Senate candidacy of Southwest Missouri's Congressman.
Rep. Roy Blunt will almost surely be a candidate in the 2010 race to replace Sen. Kit Bond, but this weekend, St. Louis attorney and Missouri political player Chuck Poplstein sent an e-mail to Missouri Republicans encouraging them to sign on now.

The e-mail, written by Poplstein and obtained by The Notebook, reads: "Fellow Republicans, after working in Missouri politics over the last few cycles I have had the pleasure to watch many of the great Republican leaders in our state. However, one of Missouri's leaders has always stood out . . . that man is Roy Blunt."

It goes on: "Please visit to encourage Roy Blunt to run for the U.S. Senate in Missouri in 2010! You can also sign up to support Roy Blunt on Facebook!"

Poplstein worked on Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign and was a member of the G.O.P's "Missouri Victory" staff during the 2006 cycle. He was also the Southeast Missouri Field Director for on Sen. Jim Talent's 2006 re-election effort.
