OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Republican cost-cutting is being practiced by Ron DeSantis in a way he probably didn’t intend. A reduction in his presidential campaign staff is being monitored by

According to a story published on Saturday, July 15, DeSantis has just fired a number of employees. Although the precise number is unknown, it is assumed to be between nine and twelve out of a staff of roughly 92.

Resumes sent to Never Back Down, a political action committee that supports DeSantis, served as the basis for the study. They originated from campaign employees who were let go.

Additionally, two of DeSantis’ top campaign aides have just quit the organization. They currently work for a charity that backs DeSantis.

Generra Peck, the campaign manager, may have hired staff employees too soon, according to unnamed sources who spoke to ABC News. Peck has not yet responded to that.

Despite Donald Trump’s indictments and alleged indictments, DeSantis’ campaign continues to come in a distant second among Republicans. But his aides are expressing optimism.

“Americans are rallying behind Ron DeSantis and his plan to reverse Joe Biden’s failures and restore sanity to our nation,” campaign spokesman Andrew Romeo told Politico, which broke the staffing story.

“His momentum will only continue as voters see more of him in person, especially in Iowa,” Romeo continued.

DeSantis is getting ready to travel around Iowa’s counties. On Monday, January 15, 2024, that state will host the first contest in the Republican primary.

Kim Reynolds, the Republican governor of Iowa, maintains her impartiality in the presidential election, according to DeSantis’ aides. Reynolds has recently been under fire from Trump for being neutral.

As DeSantis stated on July 15, “She’s one of the top public servants in America,” Vanity Fair quoted him as adding. He said that Reynolds would be a potential running mate.

DeSantis doesn’t appear to be in the mood to alter his primary campaign strategy. On Sunday, July 16, he declared that he has “no interest” in criticizing Trump or anyone else personally.

DeSantis said, “I think just getting in this insult game turns voters off,” on the “Media Buzz” segment of the Fox News Channel, which the New York Post was watching. We must put aside that and concentrate on the problems.

Chris Christie, a former governor of New Jersey, is urging other Republican contenders to be more critical of Trump.

Between April and June, DeSantis’ campaign raised nearly $20 million. That was more than the $17.7 million the Trump campaign raised, which came mainly from a transfer of money.

Trump’s campaign obtains the majority of its funding from smaller individuals, whereas about 85% of DeSantis’s funds come from large donors.

According to CNN, since the Florida governor formally entered the race in late May, DeSantis’ campaign has spent nearly $8 million.

The Never Back Down PAC, according to NBC News, says it will spend up to $200 million to support DeSantis.

With assistance from his party’s national committee, incumbent Democrat Joe Biden has a campaign bank of nearly $72 million.

Early in July, a Florida Atlantic University survey showed Trump leading DeSantis in the Sunshine State by a 20-point margin.
