Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ will announce his candidacy for president during a conversation with Elon Musk on Twitter tonight. On Tuesday, DeSantis’ wife Casey posted a 30-second launch video to her Twitter. In the video, DeSantis is seen standing behind stage in front of a large American flag. The interview with Musk is set to take place on Twitter Spaces at 6 p.m. ET and will be moderated by David Sacks. DeSantis entering the race will send shockwaves across the political world and he plans to capitalize on that energy by hosting a high dollar 24 hour fundraising event at the Four Seasons Resort in Miami on Wednesday and Thursday. His official kickoff event will then be days later at a local baseball field in his hometown of Dunedin, Florida.

In the ad it says:
“They call it faith because in the face of darkness you can see that brighter future. A faith that our best days lay ahead of us. But is it worth the fight? Do I have the courage? Is it worth the sacrifice? America has been worth it every single time,”
Following his talk with Musk, DeSantis will hold his first national T.V. interview with Trey Gowdy on Fox News at 8 p.m.
The response to the Florida governor’s launch will be telling to how strong of a force he will be in the coming primary. If he makes major noise and receives endorsements from big names then expect DeSantis to be a serious contender in 2024.
