Over 100 ex-Trump officials backing DeSantis in 2024: report

More than 100 former Trump administration officials have started a group to support Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ expected 2024 White House bid, according to a report.

The members of the so-called “Eight-Year Alliance” argue that DeSantis is a “a proven winner” who “does what he says,” based on his record as the governor of the Sunshine State.

The new coalition is also backing DeSantis because they feel he is a strong candidate to serve two terms in the White House, according to a Fox News report on Monday.

Members told the news outlet they want to keep their ex-boss, former President Donald Trump, from “immediately becoming a lame-duck president” should he win a 2024 race against President Biden.

The report names former acting Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio, former Special Assistant to the Secretary of Defense Will Bushman, former Counselor to the Secretary and White House Liaison at the Department of Labor Pedro Allende, former Senior Counsel and Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Commerce James Uthmeier and Principal Deputy General Counsel at the Department of Commerce David Dewhirst as some of the members of “Eight-Year Alliance.”

The wheels coming off the Trump campaign bus right before our eyes.
The Republic is lost.
