Reportedly, a former adviser to Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., during his defunct presidential campaign, is now reportedly leading a new initiative in Iowa to support Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Scott withdrew from the presidential election of 2024 on November 12.

The organization debuted a week ago with a television advertisement purchase of $980,000 that compared Republican rival Nikki Haley to Hillary Clinton.

It will concentrate on broadcasting advertisements in Iowa that criticize Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, while DeSantis struggles to maintain his No. 2 ranking in the state.

Having spent the majority of his time and resources since the summer in Iowa, where he has been in second place behind former President Donald Trump in the first caucus state.

Haley is likened to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in one of the advertisements.

In the interim, Americans for Prosperity, the political branch of the influential Koch network, endorsed Haley’s presidential campaign on Tuesday.

For several years, the Koch network has been constructing a network of compensated conservative activists and volunteers in pivotal states.

The Koch network initiated advertisements in the initial three states on the Republican presidential primary schedule—Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina—during the spring.

These advertisements centered on concerns regarding Trump’s electability in the general election against President Biden, which would take place in the following autumn.

Despite this, Trump continues to maintain his monumental lead in the campaign.
