Roe’s exit occurs just a few weeks before DeSantis must contend with a crucial test in Iowa’s Republican presidential primary, where he is battling former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley for second place behind Donald Trump.

Roe’s resignation startled party members and DeSantis’ public relations team. According to the Washington Post, the PAC that supported Governor Ron DeSantis during his 2024 campaign engaged in a lot of blame-shifting as a result of the internal issues with his campaign.

In his farewell message, Roe stated, “I can’t believe it ended this way. I’m so proud to have worked alongside these men and women at NBD 24/7 for the past nine months to save the country. Good luck the next 28 days and a wake up. I’m so sorry I can’t be there with you,”

Three employees of Roe’s firm, the founding chief executive and the board chairman, have all resigned, totaling five senior people since late November.

According to Politico’s Alex Isenstadt, Governor DeSantis relied significantly on Never Back Down PAC to oversee key campaign activities, particularly field deployment.
