Never Back Down, the super PAC supporting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis presidential bid parted ways with their interim CEO who served a little more than a week in the position.
Kristin Davison replaced Chris Jankowski as CEO of the PAC, but was fired just nine days later over unspecified “management and personnel issues” people familiar with the matter told Politico.
Jankowski resigned as CEO on November 22. He wrote in a statement at the time that “it has become untenable for me to deliver on the shared goal and that goes well beyond a difference of strategic opinion.”
Davison’s departure on Saturday comes one day after the PAC’s chairman Adam Laxalt announced he was stepping down, citing a “need to return my time and attention to my family and law practice.”
The super PAC said in a statement that Scott Wagner, who was already tapped to replace Laxalt, will also fill the role of interim CEO.
Despite the turmoil within the super PAC, press secretary Dave Vasquez insists they have “the most organized, advanced caucus operation of anyone in the 2024 primary field.”
“We look forward to continuing that great work to help elect Gov. DeSantis the next President of the United States,” he said.
