FLORIDA (AP) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis plans to announce his 2024 presidential campaign in a Twitter Spaces event with Elon Musk on Wednesday.
That’s according to two people with knowledge of the plans who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because they weren’t authorized to discuss it publicly.
Musk seemed to confirm the news Tuesday in London, saying DeSantis would be making “quite an announcement’ on Twitter on Wednesday.
He called it “the first time something like this is happening on social media,” with real time questions and answers.
DeSantis is seen as Donald Trump’s leading rival for the 2024 GOP nomination.
