(AmericanProsperity.com) – A super Pac supporting Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis launched its first attack on Sunday morning on former US President and rival Donald Trump. The fundraising group, which backs DeSantis’ potential presidential bid, questioned Trump’s allegiance to his GOP fellows, considering the way the former president has attacked not only the Florida Governor but also other Republican leaders.
In its ad, which is titled “Fight Democrats, not Republicans,” the pro-DeSantis super Pac named Never Back Down asked, “What happened to Trump?” It also said that instead of lying about the Florida Governor, the former president should fight against the Democratic Party.
The fundraising group released the ad on Fox News and online. The ad starts with a reference to the different legal issues that Trump is currently facing in New York. Then, the ad asks why the former president is spending millions of dollars attacking DeSantis if he’s currently being attacked by Democrat prosecutor Alvin Bragg in New York.
On April 4th, the former US commander-in-chief pleaded not guilty in Manhattan to 34 different felony counts related to the Stormy Daniels scandal. In addition, Trump was questioned last week in a separate $250 million business fraud lawsuit, which was brought by the New York attorney general.
Pro-Trump super PAC Make America Great Again has attacked the Florida Governor in different opportunities. The latest case took place last Friday when an ad released by this fundraising group referenced a Daily Beast article that said DeSantis was eating chocolate with his fingers in 2019, during a flight to Washington. Then, the ad says that the Florida governor has “dirty fingers” since he has slashed Social Security, raise retirement, and cut Medicare. The ad closes by saying that the Florida governor must “keep his pudding fingers off our money.”
In November 2022, Trump launched a bid for next year’s Republican nomination. DeSantis, who many expect him to launch a presidential run, is in second place in polls right after the former president.
