On Saturday, Jeff Roe, the principal strategist for the super PAC supporting the 2024 presidential campaign of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, tendered his resignation.
The significance of the matter: Roe’s departure from Never Back Down is the most recent in a string of personnel-related setbacks and occurs mere weeks before the crucial Iowa caucuses.
“Effective immediately,” Roe announced his resignation from his position in an X post.
Roe indicated in his post that he “cannot in good conscience stay affiliated with Never Back Down given the statements in the Washington Post today.”
Roe joins the growing number of Never Back Down employees who have resigned or been terminated in recent weeks.
I can’t believe it ended this way. I’m so proud to have worked alongside these men and women at NBD 24/7 the past nine months to save the country. Good luck the next 28 days and a wake up. I’m so sorry I can’t be there with you. pic.twitter.com/Rh4oQQ1tAE
