Isn’t this time to staff UP?
The Florida GOP Governor campaign spending burn rate has caught him flat footed as he fights to stay afloat with Trump grabbing all the polling leads EVERYWHERE, even in his Florida….
His media narrive is now about his Presidential campaign going down in flames…..
Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign is expanding the number of staff it’s cutting to include more than a third of his payroll as the Florida governor looks to get his primary bid back on track.
The cuts, which were confirmed by advisers, will amount to a total of 38 jobs shed across an array of departments. They will include the roughly 10 event planning positions that were announced several weeks ago, in addition to the recent departures of two senior DeSantis campaign advisers, Dave Abrams and Tucker Obenshain.
Following a top-to-bottom review of our organization, we have taken additional, aggressive steps to streamline operations and put Ron DeSantis in the strongest position to win this primary and defeat Joe Biden,” DeSantis campaign manager Generra Peck said in a statement. “Gov. DeSantis is going to lead the Great American Comeback and we’re ready to hit the ground running as we head into an important month of the campaign.”
Nate Silver: “DeSantis has run in five previous elections and won all five — three races for the U.S. House and two for governor. How impressive were the results? Other than 2022, not particularly impressive — about in line with what you’d expect from a generic Republican…”
“So you have four cycles of essentially league-average performance, and then one cycle where DeSantis killed it. This is basically the politics equivalent of the year that Luis Gonzalez somehow hit 57 home runs.”
“What made the difference in 2022? Performance-enhancing drugs? Nah, it was probably Covid.”
