 DeSantis, allies prepare major Trump counteroffensive
by Max Greenwood - 05/25/23 6:00 AM ET

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his allies are preparing to launch a major counteroffensive against former President Trump as the second-term governor enters the 2024 race for the GOP’s White House nomination. 

DeSantis is well behind Trump in national polls, but his team largely brushes off the challenge of taking on the former president, arguing there is plenty of time for the Floridian to make up ground and that his message of “conservatism plus result” will resonate with GOP primary voters.

“We haven’t really been preparing for Day 1. We’ve been preparing for the months ahead of Day 1 even,” an adviser with Never Back Down, the main super PAC backing DeSantis’s presidential bid, told The Hill. 

“We’ve been building and employing tactics that have put him in an incredibly strong position and, arguably, a stronger position than Trump.”

DeSantis is jumping into the race with both feet, as advisers say there won’t be any lag between Wednesday’s announcement — which will be included in an unusual interview with Twitter CEO Elon Musk — and an operation that is up-and-running. 

Never Back Down is preparing a $100 million voter outreach effort and has begun assembling a team of staffers and organizers in the first 18 states on the GOP primary calendar.
