Uh-oh. I'm not willing to write Donald Trump off just yet, but this could be bad news.
Ken Cuccinelli, a former Trump administration official, announced the launch of the "Never Back Down PAC" on March 9.
Unfortunately for Trump, this PAC is not going to benefit him. The PAC's main focus is Ron DeSantis.
"America’s Future is Ron DeSantis," Cuccinelli said in his announcement.
He then asked the Florida governor for a BIG favor on America's behalf, saying:
Today, I’m asking you to run for president. You’ve had our back. Now we will have yours. It’s time for fresh conservative leadership.
"Under his leadership, Governor DeSantis has made Florida the number one destination for Americans looking for more freedom and a brighter future," Cuccinelli added. "When Governor DeSantis is President DeSantis, there won’t be any Chinese spy balloons drifting across America. For all of you watching today, I’m asking you to join us in calling on Governor DeSantis to run to become president."
Today I’m launching Never Back Down PAC @Nvrbackdown24 to encourage @GovRonDeSantis to run for President in 2024 🇺🇸
The energy is real. Grassroots conservatives see that Governor DeSantis is a proven leader who can win in 2024. #NeverBackDownhttps://t.co/1VKNweKgq5 pic.twitter.com/OaKq1XJrKr
