"I've had pickups off and on throughout most of my life and in fact the only we car we had in my life when I was born was a pickup, so I'm used to riding a pickup. But I haven't bought a new shirt in a while," Blunt said when questioned about the pickup by a reporter in at the American Legion event in Jefferson City earlier this month.Daily RFT left a message today with Blunt's campaign for comment. We'll let you know when we hear back from them.
"So you're not driving in a rented pickup?" the reporter asked.
"No we are, you usually don't campaign in your personal vehicle, so yes we've been using a pickup."
