DES MOINES, Iowa – Never Back Down, a super PAC supporting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign will air a new ad, entitled “Stone Cold Dead,” highlighting the governor’s plan to secure the southern border including deploying troops to the southern border to stop illegal entries and engage members of Mexican drug cartels crossing the border with deadly force.
