An ex-Trump official is throwing his support behind Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla), saying he is the "strongest Republican available." 

Former Acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security and Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli launched a "Never Back Down" political action committee, urging DeSantis to run against former President Trump in 2024.

"Based on those conversations, I am most confident that we will build an unmatched grassroots political army for Governor DeSantis to help carry him to the White House." 

The PAC will highlight DeSantis's achievements and encourage voters to sign a petition calling on the Florida governor to run for the White House.
