Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to announce candidacy for president Wednesday on Twitter: sources
Ron DeSantis instantly becomes top-tier contender in 2024 GOP nomination race alongside former President Donald Trump

By Paul Steinhauser , Andrew Murray | Fox News

After months of buildup and speculation, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida is officially entering the 2024 White House.

Sources familiar confirmed to Fox News that the popular, conservative two-term governor will declare that he's candidate for president, on Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET during a conversation with Elon Musk on Twitter.

Along with his announcement, DeSantis is expected to file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, which officially launches his GOP presidential campaign.

Even though he's been on the 2024 sidelines, DeSantis for months has been in the top tier of Republican nomination contenders, behind former President Donald Trump and ahead of the rest of the field of actual and likely candidates in nearly every GOP primary poll.

The announcement by DeSantis coincides with his meeting this week in Miami with top financial backers.

Well, FL is going to lose a really good conservative governor, but he's going to make an excellent president.  :patriot:

Very true.  I hope that Floridians get lucky twice with his replacement, should that become necessary.

He’s term limited either way.  The Lt. Gov. seems capable.

There are very bright lines under federal law for when you have to declare, and the existence of an independent superpac supporting your candidacy isn't one of them.

Remember when Trump was doing all those rallies before he declared, and was saying things like "I'm not officially running yet, but I'm going to be making an announcement at the appropriate time and I think you are going to be very happy with it?"  It was even more obvious that he was running than DeSantis, and yet his supporters had no issue at all with him playing that game.  It's only when someone else did the same thing Trump had done that they decided it was a big deal.

Trump aides mock DeSantis for ‘out of touch’ campaign launch plans

BY BRETT SAMUELS - 05/23/23 4:13 PM ET


Allies of former President Trump ridiculed Ron DeSantis on the eve of his 2024 presidential campaign launch, bashing the Florida governor for making his expected announcement on Twitter and mocking his campaign rollout.

“This is one of the most out-of-touch campaign launches in modern history. The only thing less relatable than a niche campaign launch on Twitter, is DeSantis’ after party at the uber elite Four Seasons resort in Miami,” Karoline Leavitt, a spokesperson for the Trump-aligned Make America Great Again Inc., said in a statement.

“Everyday more and more Americans are realizing just how out of step Ron DeSantis is with their values and how unelectable he really is,” Leavitt added.

Trump campaign aides also piled on after it was widely reported that DeSantis planned to formally enter the 2024 race during a Wednesday night conversation on Twitter Spaces with the company’s CEO, Elon Musk.

Okey dokey. Four Seasons vs Mar A Lago. DeSantis uses Twitter vs Trump using it extensively. Too bad DeSantis couldn't find a golden escalator to ride down to show how in touch he was. wink777

imho, Trump gave DeSantis name recognition with his incessant pounding. In my heart of hearts, I'm not sure DeSantis even intended to run initially. But what else could he do after the ridiculous negative criticism?

Yeah, anyone comparing self-made middle-class kid DeSantis to spoiled rich kid Trump, and trying to paint DeSantis as the elitist, needs to get back on their meds.

I agree.  If he didn't run, It would have looked to some like Trump bullied him out of it.   So Trump ended up getting the exact thing he wanted to prevent.

Only problem is I think most of us know that this is going to be another Trump circus show just like in '16.  I'm afraid it's going to hand the DEMS the WH.   

The only silver lining to that will be that DeSantis will still be our governor and Trump won't run again.

   I'm sure DeSantis has studied every minute of Trump's 16 Campaign against Cruz and is fully aware what a slimeball he can be and at what point to expect it. He is a Harvard/Yale Lawyer, after all.
   Cruz and many others will jump into the RDS Car (not Train) upon his announcement, IMHO.
