Ready for Ron Petition Surpasses 100,000 Signatures Americans Embracing DeSantis’ Leadership & Want Him in White House
Miami, FL | November 28, 2022 09:30 AM Eastern Standard Time
Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to Draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, announced its Draft Petition has surpassed more than 100,000 signatures. Organized by senior strategist Ed Rollins and appellate attorney and conservative activist Lilian Rodríguez-Baz, the 100,000 signature milestone reflects the growing national movement urging Ron DeSantis to run.
“We’ve already blown past 100,000 Americans expressly urging Ron to Run, and by the time we’re done, it’ll be millions, and Ron DeSantis WILL be our next President,” stated Lilian Rodriguez-Baz, Chief Legal Strategist for Ready for Ron.
The petition effort continues to grow with TV and digital advertising, direct voter outreach, and expanding grassroots efforts. Veterans Ready for Ron, led by 2016 RNC Vets director Bob Carey, and Students Ready for Ron led by Young Americans for Liberty field organizer Dylan Dean, fielded volunteers collecting signatures on Election Day at polling sites nationwide, kicking off an aggressive field campaign.
The petition is also the focus of a lawsuit Ready for Ron brought in the U.S. District Court for D.C. against the Federal Election Commission (FEC) challenging an FEC Advisory Opinion preventing Ready for Ron from sharing with Governor DeSantis the names of those who signed a petition encouraging him to challenge Joe Biden.
Ready for Ron’s counsel, veteran political lawyer Dan Backer, who brought the case said, “Millions of Americans want Ron DeSantis to run. More than 100,000 have signed their names to Ready for Ron’s draft petition. It’s the ultimate act of political free speech and association, and there is simply no basis for saying they cannot give those names to the Governor if – and when – he heeds their call and runs. We’re going to fight to protect our right to Free Speech and Free Association and to draft DeSantis to seek the Presidency, and we’re going to win.”
“We are thrilled to have reached this significant milestone on our way to building one of the biggest grassroots movements ever,” Rodríguez-Baz continued. “The radical left is risking our future. We must change course immediately. While with the economy, inflation, crime, and erosion parental rights and the American way of life, we need confident, dependable, and proven leadership like only Ron DeSantis can deliver – and the American people are making their voice loud and clear.”
Following nearly six months of work by Ready for Ron, Governor DeSantis has a growing lead in several polls in key states. The advertising efforts, phone calls, petition, and grassroots campaigns are helping generate significant leads in key battleground states and in the hearts and minds of the American people.
“If Election 2022 proved anything, it’s that DeSantis is the complete package: He is a true leader, seeing out the day-to-day roles and responsibilities that political leadership demands in good times and bad. DeSantis sticks to his principles — real, patriotic, American principles that don’t turn with the tide — but not at the expense of public service. DeSantis is not just a politician with savvy instincts; he is a public servant through and through,” wrote Ready for Ron Chief Political Strategist Ed Rollins in a November 10th op-ed in FoxNews.com. “DeSantis is not about ego or media hype; he is about results. That’s why Americans are ready for Ron to win the White House next.”
Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage Americans to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024.
