‘Ready for Ron’ launches $3.3 Million National Independent Expenditure Campaign

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, launched a $3.3 million Independent Expenditure campaign to build the grassroots “ground game” to support a DeSantis Presidential candidacy. As detailed in a recent FEC report the campaign includes $2.3 million in national television advertising – at a rate of $100,000 per week – and $1 million for phone, mail, and digital outreach efforts. “This is a critical investment to engage the public with our message that Joe Biden and the Democrats are the problem, and electing Ron DeSantis is the solution. We must build up the national volunteer network it will take to win,” stated Dan Backer Counsel to Ready for Ron. “Following 3 straight election losses, it is clear, blowing big money on consultants for flashy ads that just talk at voters fails – but we see time and time again that our unique strategy of direct engagement creates real results around which we can build a winning ground game. We are pursuing a volunteer driven strategy that cuts out high-priced consultants and puts every penny into building the infrastructure to support a DeSantis candidacy.” In an interview with the Financial Times, Backer explained that “the purpose of the ad spending was to create ‘the backbone of a real ground game’ for DeSantis and ‘convince DeSantis that he has the grassroots support to run and win in a general election’. He added that Ready for Ron wanted to ‘bring in a whole host of people who aren’t part of the current universe’, including those who are not part of Trump’s base of conservative voters, which has dominated Republican campaigns in recent years. Fox News reported that In November Ready for Ron had already announced its petition has received more than 100,000 signatures. 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. Comments from Dan Backer featured in a Newsmax story focused on how the Ready for Ron “…spending should help ‘offset any competitive advantage that any other campaigns may or may not have”….between now and a hoped-for eventual announcement of a DeSantis candidacy. Politico also reported the news in its popular Playbook and Influence newsletters. In interviews with The Daily Caller and The Washington Examiner, Backer stated, “Ready for Ron is investing heavily in drafting Ron DeSantis to run for president in 2024, knowing that he is the Republican Party’s best chance to win back the White House. DeSantis’ pro-freedom platform has made Florida the best state to live in America — I know, I moved here — and we won’t stop until that platform goes national for all Americans to enjoy.” Since its launch in late May, Ready for Ron has enlisted more than one hundred twenty thousand supporters to build on-the-ground grassroots support, generated significant media attention, 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 polls in key states. The advertising efforts, phone calls, petition, and grassroots campaigns are helping generate significant leads in early primary and 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. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a ‘Ready for Ron’ spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Denver Acquires 31-Year Business A Great American Print Shop

Minuteman Press International Inc

Abel Corral, owner of Minuteman Press in Denver located at 4725 Paris Street, Suite 200, has acquired independent printing business A Great American Print Shop from retiring owner Frank Hibberd. A Great American Print Shop operated in Denver for 31 years. When Frank received a mailer from Minuteman Press, he reached out to Regional VP Jack Panzer. Jack says, “Frank wanted to retire and I told him about our unique ability to help independent print shops sell their business. I connected him with Abel, who had expressed interest growing and expanding his business through an acquisition. I am glad they were able to work out a deal, and I wish Frank all the best in retirement.” On the acquisition, Abel Corral says, “The acquisition came about on the heels of our three year anniversary; this is also our second acquisition in two years. I was looking for a way to grow my business and so I let it be known to Jack Panzer that I’d be interested in acquiring another print shop.” Abel continues, “A Great American Print Shop was strategically located within an area that I already reach and market to and so this acquisition just seemed like a good fit. I really liked that this was an established business with growth potential that I feel my team could capitalize on. The potential upside, close proximity, and perfect timing all came into play.” He adds, “The acquisition included an established client base, paper inventory, some equipment including cutters, and access to Frank during the transition. I expect this acquisition to help increase revenue by 20-25%. Also, this acquisition benefits AGAP’s customers in three key ways: First, we have received all of the previous artwork for AGAP clients to ensure a seamless transition as we serve their print, design, and mailing needs. Second, we will be able to offer promotional products and apparel to AGAP clients, which were not previously available. Third, we will be providing value-added local customer service and client support. Our Minuteman Press location is near Peoria & Interstate 70: 4725 Paris St. #200, Denver, CO 80239, inside the Pinecreek Office Center. We are also offering free delivery to AGAP customers.” Abel concludes, “I’m very grateful that my Regional VP Jack Panzer helped me by presenting this opportunity and helping me through the process. I expect this could be a game-changer for our business.” Abel Corral’s Minuteman Press franchise in Denver is located at 4725 Paris Street, Suite 200, Denver, CO 80239.

NLPC Calls Upon Special Counsel to Search Biden’s Senate Records Stored at University of Delaware for Additional Classified Documents

National Legal & Policy Center

The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has called upon the Special Counsel to conduct a search of Biden’s Senate records stored at the University of Delaware. The request follows revelations that additional classified documents were discovered Friday at President Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, during a 13-hour search by the FBI. The documents reportedly include at least one document from the time that Biden served in the Senate. In 2011, Biden donated a treasure trove of documents from his 36-year career in the U.S. Senate (January 1973-January 2009) that fills 1,875 boxes and also includes 415 gigabytes of electronic records. During his Senate career, Biden was Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee or its ranking member and had access to many classified documents. “The FBI needs to search the entire 14,000 square foot Penn Biden Center where classified documents were found by his private attorneys searching only Biden’s private office on November 2 nd. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who served as managing director also had an office there. The FBI also needs to search Biden’s Senate records stored at the University of Delaware as well as his beach home,” said NLPC Counsel, Paul Kamenar. “This scavenger hunt for classified documents has been a total farce and insult to the American people,” said Peter Flaherty, Chairman of NLPC. “The House Oversight Committee, Special Counsel, and NLPC’s FOIA investigation need to get to the bottom of Biden’s mishandling classified information.” NLPC has also criticized the handling of this matter by Biden’s private attorneys who are not cleared to review classified information and who may have tainted evidence of a crime with their fingerprints and mishandling. A major question remains unanswered: why did Biden decide two years after he occupied the White House to move his office at the Biden Center and why hire expensive private attorneys to do so instead of Biden Center staff? Other locations that Biden occupied since leaving office in January 2017 should also be searched. He first had a temporary transition office set up by GSA near the White House. Then a temporary Penn Biden Center facility was opened mid-town in Washington, D.C., before the office was opened in February 2018 near the Capitol. Biden also rented a 12,000 square-foot mansion in McLean, Virginia at $20,000 a month after he left the White House, about twice the size of his home in Wilmington, Delaware. NLPC has been investigating the Biden Center since early 2020 and its funding by Chinese donations, much of it anonymous. NLPC filed a complaint with the Department of Education in May 2020 and with the Department of Justice that both Hunter Biden and the Biden Center should be registered as a foreign agents with China under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. ### Please visit http://www.nlpc.org.

Digitonic Rejects Takeover Offers, Launches AI-Driven Platform for Next-Level Investor Relations

Digitonic Ltd.

This press release contains a video. If you don’t see a video, click the link. UK-based technology-driven Investor Relations (“IR”) marketing company, Digitonic, is pleased to announce plans to release a range of innovative next-generation services throughout 2023. Spearheaded by the revolutionary, AI-driven “NextGen Newswire” platform, the products will complete the Company’s full pivot into the North American financial marketing space. Digitonic’s pioneering technology has repeatedly driven record financial results since the Company’s launch in 2011. In 2021, revenues reached an all-time high of over $16 million–more than double the year before–propelled by the business’s increasing success in the IR space. Last year, Digitonic went on to receive two takeover bids from competitors as its robust performance continued amid difficult market-wide conditions. However, it ultimately rejected these offers to focus its resources on meeting the vast demand it identified among listed companies for innovative IR services that outperform in all market conditions. Co-founder and CEO Grant Fraser commented: “ Although tempting, we had 100% support from the original investors to kindly reject the offers from US and Canadian based companies and move forward with our plan to fully pivot into Investor Relations. In 2022, we focused all our internal resources on innovating the investor relations sector by building next-generation products and services that will revolutionize the way publicly-listed companies release news and engage with investors in a compliant way. We’re excited about the difference our significant investment in R&D will make to our clients. Our new services will help them achieve their shareholder goals by amplifying their news flow to a global audience of investors.” Drawing on its market-leading technological edge, Digitonic has now completed the development of a range of next-generation products. The Company is now ready to commercialize them across publicly-listed companies trading on the NYSE, Nasdaq, OTC Markets, TSX, CSE, NEO, LSE, AIM and ASX. Mr Fraser added: “Digitonic has its strongest ever sales pipeline, and we’re looking forward to demoing our new IR ideas to more of the companies that have already expressed interest in working with us as well as other strong, undervalued businesses with market caps that have declined recently due to financial market uncertainty.” Digitonic expects its services to provide it with multiple additional sources of significant recurring revenue, both in strong markets and any weaker ones that may occur in the future. The Company will re-examine a public market float as a potential source of funding for the services’ long-term growth following their launch. As well as targeting entirely new areas of the IR market, Digitonic’s new platforms complement its existing services entirely. These include ValueTheMarkets.com, which the Company has developed into a leading financial content platform reaching more than 7 million investors since it acquired the asset in 2020. Digitonic has also established itself as one of the most trusted IR marketing partners in North America for publicly-listed companies. Its proprietary data-driven SONA contextual ad platform, always-on marketing, and quality content campaigns have repeatedly enabled clients to amplify their reach to investors. Digitonic’s robust approach to compliance is one of the reasons it is now a premium provider to the OTC Markets (OTCQX: OTCM) The first new product to launch will be Digitonic’s “NextGen­ Newswire”–an AI-driven newswire service that distributes press releases to a global audience in an original and extremely engaging way. With NextGen Newswire, Digitonic rapidly creates engaging videos of its clients’ upcoming news flow narrated by a styled avatar using press release content. These are then distributed across the world’s most-visited financial content platforms including Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Factset, Dow Jones and MarketWatch, among many others. Digitonic has tested NextGen Newswire with a variety of existing clients to highly positive feedback and expects 45 listed businesses to onboard in Q1 2023. The Company is also in talks with fellow IR providers about white labeling or partnering for the launch of NextGen Newswire in territories beyond North America. To support the accommodation of strong demand for NextGen Newswire, Digitonic has secured $1 million of venture debt from Beach Point Capital. The funds will also be used to support the wider roll-out of Digitonic’s new product range throughout the year–the details of which are forthcoming. About Beach Point Capital Beach Point Capital is a multi-strategy investment manager making credit, private equity, real estate and structured product investments. As of December 31, 2022, Beach Point Capital manages $14.5 billion in AUM on behalf of sophisticated global institutional investors.

Headquartered in Santa Monica, CA, the firm also has offices in New York, London, and Dublin. About Digitonic Digitonic is a UK-based technology-driven Investor Relations (“IR”) marketing company passionate about encouraging smart investing. The Company has an enviable reputation in North America as the most trusted partner for investor relations marketing, built on solid foundations of compliance, technical innovation, and a ruthless focus on results. Digitonic specialize in helping publicly-listed companies achieve and surpass their shareholder goals in a manner that protects brand and shareholder reputation. It provides a range of IR marketing services that combine high-quality, engaging content, pioneering technology, and industry best practices to raise awareness and drive investment into a company.
