++ For all media enquiries please contact Shane Greer ++

Biteback Media acquires Campaigns & Elections

Biteback Media publishing group, which publishes Total Politics magazine, has expanded internationally by purchasing three titles, Campaigns & Elections (US), Campaigns & Elections (Canada) and Campaigns & Elections (Latin America), through Biteback’s US arm Political Holdings Limited US Inc..

Campaigns & Elections (US) was founded in 1980 by Stanley Foster Reed, and covers the strategies, techniques, and personalities of modern politics. It is read by tens of thousands of federal, state and local elected officials, candidates for public office, party activists, issue campaigners, political consultants, campaign staffs, lobbyists, PAC directors, university professors, news reporters and numerous behind-the-scenes opinion makers.

The acquisition was led by Shane Greer, Chief Executive of Biteback Media and President of Political Holdings Limited US Inc., who will act as publisher of the Campaigns & Elections group of magazines.

Remarking on the acquisition, Greer said: “This is a busy time for Total Politics and the Campaigns & Elections group of magazines. With the 2012 presidential election around the corner, and the editorial and event synergies between the UK, US, Canadian and Latin American titles the next couple of years promise to be an exciting period for the group.”

Founder and publisher of Total Politics, and Managing Director of the Biteback Group, Iain Dale said: “I’m delighted to see Campaigns & Elections become part of the group. It’s a natural fit and the opportunities are tremendous. It will also give Biteback Publishing a US base and enable it to expand its US book publishing activities. I look forward to seeing the group’s magazine interests expand and develop under Shane’s leadership.”


Notes for the editor:
Total Politics was launched in 2008 and is published monthly. It is strictly non-partisan and is committed to being unremittingly positive about the political process.
Campaigns & Elections is based in Washington DC.
Biteback Publishing is part of the Biteback Group and publishes political books in the UK
