My local press prints local news. If we issue press releases from local meetups about the campaign we will get coverage:

1) Plan a Press Release about the fundraiser, both before and after Feb 1st. We should ask reporters from local newspapers and possibly TV stations to interview our meetup members and/or precinct leaders. Then a follow up article following the Fundraiser.

2) Spread campaign press release's about being #1 GOP Fundraiser. Include some photos and talking points about Ron Paul's philosophy (return to fiscal conservatism, eliminate the patriot act...).

Newspapers are always hunting for stories, should not be too difficult to get them to write something up if there are local people involved who can be interviewed/photographed.

Let's maximize our exposure this time. Thoughts? The campaign can't do this, but they can give us press releases and if we contact our local media...those releases will get coverage.

This is a good idea... but we need to hurry. Also the information on this page -> http://knowbeforeyouvote.com should be included in any publication if possible.
