Ryan Binkley Ramps Up Presidential Campaign as Five Opponents Drop Out

Candidate Sets Sights on the Iowa Caucuses in January

LEON, IOWA (November 7, 2023)–Presidential candidate Ryan Binkley is stepping up efforts to meet with more voters and party leaders, conduct more media interviews, and spend more money on advertising through the rest of this year.

Binkley’s push is in contrast to five high-profile candidates who have dropped out of the race.

“We’ve been staying the course, and sticking with our message,” Binkley said. “I am running to save the next generation financially and spiritually. I’m communicating that well to voters and what that means to them. I’m a grassroots candidate. I’m not a billionaire, and I’m not a lifelong politician. The field is coalescing a little bit, and we’re going to stay in.”

In a recent Iowa poll, Binkley surpassed Will Hurd, Perry Johnson, Larry Elder and Mike Pence, who all ended their campaigns along with Francis Suarez. The survey showed Binkley’s poll numbers had doubled, putting him in a tie with Chris Christie and passing Doug Burgum and Asa Hutchinson as he landed in sixth place.

“We are aiming to come out of Iowa in the top four,” Binkley said about the Iowa caucuses scheduled for January 15, 2024. “That will help us get more national attention. Hopefully, we’ll have a bigger breakout moment before then, as we continue to collect more donations, hit more counties in Iowa and New Hampshire, and get on primary ballots across the country.”

Binkley has spoken to voters in more than 80 counties in Iowa, and he plans to continue crisscrossing the state in order to visit all 99 by the middle of this month. 

The campaign has filed paperwork that has been approved for Binkley to officially appear on the ballot in all of the early states (Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina). Binkley plans to get on the primary ballot in all 50 states and is currently engaged in the process of doing that, which includes gathering signatures and submitting filing fees.

Binkley’s campaign has received contributions from more than 70,000 unique donors, a requirement for the third Republican presidential debate. 

His steadfast determination to keep pushing forward is embodied by his campaign slogan of “Believe” emblazoned on hats worn by his loyal and growing contingent of supporters. 

“I didn’t know much about him but was happily surprised to hear someone speak of values I care about,” said Lisa Yunek after seeing Binkley give a keynote address in Clear Lake, Iowa. “He is a businessman who cares and knows about the economy and gets that we can’t keep spending money we don’t have and then cross our fingers and hope the next generation can pay our bills. How refreshing to hear a reasonable person give some key solutions to major problems!”
