Something curious is happening with Ron DeSantis’ supposedly flailing presidential campaign: The Florida governor keeps accruing prominent endorsements and growing his coalition of conservative activists.

Since Labor Day, as DeSantis watched his support in the Republican primary dwindle, public backing for his 2024 bid has piled up, from both prominent officials and organizations.

On Wednesday, the DeSantis campaign unveiled its national coalition of military veterans. That followed Monday’s announcement from Never Back Down, the super PAC supporting DeSantis’ campaign, that 26 county sheriffs across Iowa had endorsed the governor. That announcement was preceded on October 5 by endorsements from 60 county sheriffs in Florida. And that announcement was preceded on October 4 with Never Back Down unveiling a coalition of Iowa farmers for DeSantis, claiming more than 100 members statewide and listing, by name, 17 coalition leaders.
