Top Leader in DeSantis-Supporting Super PAC Resigns

A top strategic in a Super PAC supporting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president in 2024 has resigned.

The announcement was made Saturday as Jeff Roe of the Never Back Down Super PAC announced his exit.

"He announced his departure on X, the site formerly known as Twitter, hours after The Washington Post published a story focused on internal disputes and suspicions between Never Back Down, the campaign, and other DeSantis allies that included accusations of 'mismanagement and conduct issues, including numerous unauthorized leaks containing false information,'" Breitbart News reported.

“I can’t believe it ended this way,” Roe wrote on X, sharing a statement in which he said he “cannot in good conscience stay affiliated with Never Back Down given the statements” in the story, which he said were false, the report added.

"Never Back Down had taken an unprecedented role in the election, overseeing functions normally handled by campaigns," Newsmax reported.

"The group was charged with organizing voters through a massive door-knocking and get-out-the-vote operation, organizing campaign, as well as advertising, and has spent tens of millions of dollars on commercials this year," it continued.

Roe previously served in the GOP's 2016 campaign to help Texas Sen. Ted Cruz defeat former President Donald Trump in the Iowa primary.

The conservative strategist was also part of the team supporting Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin's win that helped Republicans achieve victory after Democrats had long led the state.

The departure adds to concerns for the DeSantis campaign just a month out from the Iowa primary.

Trump continues to lead in the state's polls, with voters soon showing whether DeSantis has gained ground on the former president.
