On Saturday night, Jeff Roe, the chief strategist of the “Never Back Down” super PAC supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign, stepped down from his position.
Roe recently resigned from the PAC, making him the most prominent employee to leave in the past few weeks, following numerous other departures.
High-ranking authorities were dismissed.
After the new chairman, Scott Wagner, joined the PAC.
Roe, a experienced Republican strategist who designed the PAC’s grassroots strategy in Iowa for DeSantis, revealed his resignation following a report from the Washington Post on Saturday that included a statement from Wagner criticizing certain former staff members.
According to surveys, DeSantis is significantly behind former President Donald Trump in Iowa, which is the first state to vote in the Republican primary. The polls also indicate that he is behind Trump and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in New Hampshire.
On Saturday night, Trump announced on his social media platform, Truth Social, that Jeff Row would no longer be involved and that it was the end for DeSanctimonious.
Trump has given DeSantis the insulting nickname “DeSanctimonious” during the campaign period.
Roe served as the campaign manager for Senator Ted Cruz’s 2016 presidential bid and also for Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin’s 2021 campaign for president.
