In a further blow to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s struggling presidential bid, the head of his super PAC, Chris Jankowski, has resigned. Jankowski’s resignation comes amid reports of turmoil within the PAC and the DeSantis campaign, as well as concerns about DeSantis’s own standing in the polls.
Jankowski’s departure is the latest in a string of setbacks for DeSantis, who has been struggling to gain traction in the Republican primary race. He is currently trailing former President Donald Trump by a significant margin in most polls.
The resignation comes as DeSantis is preparing to launch his official presidential campaign. However, he is facing a number of challenges, including a lack of support from some key Republican figures and a perception that he is too inexperienced to be president.
In addition to the internal turmoil within his campaign, DeSantis is also facing external challenges. He is currently under investigation by the Justice Department for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. He is also facing criticism for his handling of Hurricane Ian, which devastated parts of Florida in September.
Despite these challenges, DeSantis remains a formidable candidate. He is a popular figure among Republican voters, and he has a strong record as governor of Florida. However, he will need to overcome a number of obstacles if he wants to win the Republican nomination and become president.
The resignation of Jankowski is a significant blow to DeSantis’s campaign. Jankowski was a close confidant of DeSantis and a key figure in his fundraising efforts. His departure is a sign that there is growing unrest within the campaign.
It is unclear what the future holds for DeSantis’s presidential bid. However, the resignation of Jankowski is a setback that he cannot afford to ignore.
