958

The 2024 presidential race stirred as Chris Jankowski, head of the Never Back Down super PAC supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, abruptly resigned.

This departure has sent shockwaves through the organization, highlighting internal strife over the group’s future strategies.

Jankowski, a seasoned figure in Republican politics, delivered his resignation letter to the Never Back Down board, citing an untenable situation in realizing their shared goal of electing Governor DeSantis as President. 

His imminent resignation represents more than a simple divergence of views in terms of strategy. In a statement that was released, Jankowski said, “For the future of our country, I support and pray Ron DeSantis is our 47th president.”

Never Back Down has been a key player in DeSantis’ presidential bid, raising significant funds and serving as a media powerhouse to bolster the governor’s campaign.

The 2024 presidential race stirred as Chris Jankowski, head of the Never Back Down super PAC supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, abruptly resigned.

Despite these efforts, the organization has struggled to elevate DeSantis above the crowded Republican field, leaving him in a statistical tie with other contenders such as Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy, rather than emerging as the primary challenger to former President Donald Trump’s dominance within the GOP.

Reports surfaced revealing mounting frustrations within Never Back Down’s ranks, climaxing in a heated meeting that almost descended into a physical altercation. 

The confrontation reportedly involved Jeff Roe, CEO of Axiom Strategies and top consultant for the PAC, and Scott Wagner, a longtime associate of DeSantis.

Despite the internal turmoil, DeSantis received a notable endorsement from influential Iowa Christian leader Bob Vander Plaats, offering a glimmer of positivity for the campaign amid the ongoing challenges faced by Never Back Down.

The resignation of Chris Jankowski marks a pivotal moment for DeSantis’ team, raising questions about the future direction of the super PAC and the strategies that will define the governor’s bid for the presidency. 

As the political landscape continues to shift, all eyes remain on DeSantis’ camp to see how they navigate these turbulent waters on the path to the 2024 election.
