Ready for Ron Petition Surpasses 200,000 Signatures Lawsuit to Share “Draft” petition signers with DeSantis Continues – Oral Arguments Next Week
Miami, FL | February 21, 2023 10:00 AM Eastern Standard Time
Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to Draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President surpassed 200,000 signatures on its petition encouraging a DeSantis candidacy. The 200,000 signatures milestone reflects the growing national movement the organization has built to draft, nominate, and elect Ron DeSantis in 2024.
The Ready for Ron petition effort continues along with a recently announced $3.3 million spring advertising campaign, 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 former Young Americans for Liberty field organizer Dylan Dean, continue recruiting volunteers at events for its 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 run – in blatant disregard for the Constitution and clear precedent by the notoriously “Blue” agency.
Ready for Ron is filing a reply to the FEC’s opposition to its preliminary injunction motion today, with oral arguments in Washington, D.C. scheduled for Tuesday, February 28, 2023.
Ready for Ron’s counsel, veteran political lawyer Dan Backer, who brought the case said, “Millions of Americans want Ron DeSantis to run. Nearly a quarter million people have already publicly engaged with and joined the effort. Signing the petition is the ultimate act of political free speech and association, and there is simply no basis for the FEC to stand in the way of Americans telling someone they want him to run for office, or that they continue to support him doing so. We’re going to fight to protect our right to Free Speech and Free Association to draft DeSantis to seek the Presidency, and we’re going to win.”
“Americans are ready for Ron DeSantis,” stated Ed Rollins the Ready for Ron Chief Political Strategist “If he continues to govern as a bold conservative and enact pro-freedom policies, he will be poised to run for the Republican nomination and become the man to beat Joe Biden in 2024.”
Since its launch in late May, Ready for Ron has enlisted more than two hundred thousand supporters to build on-the-ground grassroots support, driven national messaging campaigns to drive up Ron’s national Leadership profile, and produced and placed advertising to convince Ron DeSantis to run for President. Ready for Ron has emerged as the most successful and credible independent organization in support of a Ron DeSantis candidacy.
Following nearly nine 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.
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.
