This isn't the first time that Donald Trump's team has gone HARD after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
This is the same campaign that tried to popularize the nickname "Pudding Fingers DeSantis."
Now, the Trump campaign is moving away from name-calling and picking up letter-writing as its preferred way to obstruct Ron DeSantis' progress toward the presidency.
Targeted mostly toward a super PAC that is supporting rival DeSantis' presidential bid, Trump's campaign recently sent a letter to all Florida Republican Party organizations arguing that "they cannot work with a super PAC as if it is representing a candidate."
David Warrington is an attorney for Trump's 2024 campaign and one of the authors of the letter.
He is arguing that the Never Back Down PAC, which is allowed to raise unlimited amounts of money, has been trying to skirt campaign rules in favor of DeSantis.
For instance, instead of admitting that the super PAC is benefitting DeSantis directly, Never Back Down has only hosted the governor as a "special guest," trying to preserve the illusion that the two sides are not closely affiliated.
Warrington had specific frustrations with a series of bus tours on which DeSantis had been invited and the fact that the super PAC is helping voters in Iowa fill out cards pledging to support the governor.
Andrew Romeo, DeSantis' campaign communications director, responded:
We will continue to follow the law as we maximize our resources to bring Ron DeSantis’ message to reverse the decline of this country and lead our Great American Comeback to as many voters as possible.

Does Trump's team have a legitimate argument here? Or do you think that Trump would be taking this same kind of help if it was offered?
