Ken Cuccinelli, who served in roles during former President Donald Trump's administration, is advocating for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to mount a White House bid and working to build a base of supporters to make that potential presidential run a success.
Cuccinelli launched the Never Back Down PAC to achieve those objectives. He previously served as acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and as acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
"I have been speaking to many grassroots conservative activists around the country who are very enthusiastic for Governor DeSantis to run for President in 2024," Cuccinelli said, according to a press release. "The energy is there, grassroots conservatives see the Governor as a leader and a fighter with a winning conservative track record who will lead the Republican Party to victory 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."
In a video, Cuccinelli noted that he was "proud" to work for Trump, but he described DeSantis as "the best leader in America today," adding that if DeSantis wins a White House bid, "we get 8 years of a great president, not just four."
If DeSantis throws his hat into the ring, that will mean challenging former President Donald Trump for the GOP presidential nomination since Trump has already announced that he is running again.
"In addition to Cuccinelli, NEVER BACK DOWN PAC will be led by Executive Director Chris Jankowski, a seasoned political entrepreneur with over 25 years of national and grassroots political experience," according to the super PAC.
