How soon before “DeSantis” himself it gone?
Last week Adam Laxalt stepped down as Chairman of the PAC:

From The Hill:
Former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt (R) has stepped down as chairman of the pro-DeSantis super PAC Never Back Down, according to a spokesperson from the group.
The New York Times was the first outlet to report on the development.
“After nearly 26 straight months of being in a full-scale campaign, I need to return my time and attention to my family and law practice,” Laxalt wrote in a Nov. 26 letter to the group’s board, according to a letter obtained by the Times.
Laxalt added he is still supporting DeSantis’s 2024 presidential bid.
DeSantis’s campaign responded to news of Laxalt’s departure from the PAC in a statement saying “the collective firepower of Team DeSantis remains unmatched.”
“As the last three Iowa Caucus winners have shown, it takes a combination of hard work, air support, and grassroots organizing to win. Never Back Down boasts an impressive field operation and ground game,” said David Polyansky, DeSantis’s deputy campaign manager.
“Working alongside their independent efforts, we will all celebrate hitting our 99th Iowa County tomorrow and carry the support of the most robust turnout operation in modern Iowa history into success on January 15.”
A few short days later, today they part ways with their new CEO:

It was a 9-day stint for Ms. Davison:

Here’s more from Politico:
Weeks of tumult at the chief super PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis continued into the weekend as it fired several top officials — including its new interim chief executive officer.
The group, Never Back Down, fired Kristin Davison on Friday for unspecified “management and personnel issues” just nine days after she replaced Chris Jankowski as CEO, according to two people familiar with the decision. Erin Perrine, a Never Back Down spokesperson, and Matthew Palmisano, another top official, were also fired, according to a person familiar with the decisions.
An internal email sent Saturday night said the super PAC had named longtime DeSantis ally Scott Wagner as interim CEO. Wagner is also replacing former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt as board chair.
The shake-ups began as tensions boiled over in recent weeks. Jankowski left on Nov. 22; Laxalt resigned four days later. Davison’s firing came five days after that, according to the two people, who were granted anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss personnel changes.
It was not immediately clear whether others had also split with the super PAC.
Davison, Perrine, and Palmisano did not respond to requests for comment. Representatives for Never Back Down referred POLITICO to Wagner’s Saturday night email. Perrine’s dismissal was first reported by Semafor, and Palmisano’s by The Associated Press.
The continued disruptions come amid widespread infighting inside the super PAC and ongoing conflict with the Florida governor’s campaign. Last week, NBC News reported on a near-physical altercation between Wagner and top Never Back Down strategist Jeff Roe.
The DeSantis campaign believes Never Back Down’s TV ads have been ineffective, those close to the governor say, and campaign manager James Uthmeier this week issued a memo implicitly suggesting the group instead focus on waging a get-out-the vote program.
As turmoil roiled Never Back Down, DeSantis allies formed a new super PAC, Fight Right. Never Back Down had been the only pro-DeSantis group — taking on more campaign functions than most super PACs normally do — and the creation of the new group raised questions about Never Back Down’s role moving forward.
What do you think?
This is not the sign of a healthy campaign.
Shoot, even Bill Mitchell is begging to get back in the good graces of MAGA, have you seen this?
Bill Mitchell Suddenly Wants To “Unify” With MAGA
Bill Mitchell suddenly wants to “unify” with the MAGA movement.
Now I know about half of you are saying “Who is Bill Mitchell?”
Well, he was an outspoken Trump supporter in 2016 and then something happened.
I don’t know exactly what, but he got very “butt hurt” and turned on Trump.
Then he went full on Team DeSantis.
Basically, the exact same life path as Ann Coulter.
Speaking of aging lesbians, no I am not calling Ann Coulter an aging lesbian, but many online constantly refer to Bill Mitchell as an “aging lesbian” because, well….just look at the photo above!
But to be clear, I am not saying that!
What I am reporting is that after months of saying the most vile and disgusting things about Trump Supporters, Bill Mitchell now suddenly wants to “make amends” and “unify”.
In other words, he knows DeSantis is toast and he’s trying to worm his way back in to our good graces.
Check this out … Bill Mitchell who has been harshly anti-Trump and pro-Desantis.. who has practically every Trump supporter blocked that has ever disagreed with him now wants to mend fences with MAGA .. he wants to be the uniter

Most are not accepting the mea culpa:
No @Mitchellvii you can’t come back.
You went all in and promised to quit social media and politics forever when President Trump wins the nomination.
And it’s “offering an olive branch” not a “Fig leaf” you dullard.
