Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to Launch 2024 Presidential Bid with Elon Musk on Twitter Spaces

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is set to announce his 2024 presidential bid in an online appearance with Twitter CEO Elon Musk.[0] The two are scheduled to host an event on Twitter Spaces, the site’s platform for audio chats, on May 25 at 7 p.m.[1] Sorry, this text cannot be rewritten as it only consists of two letters and lacks context.[2] The event will be moderated by tech entrepreneur and Musk confidant David Sacks, who is also a DeSantis supporter.[3] DeSantis is expected to file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to officially launch his GOP presidential campaign.[4] Musk's purchase of Twitter has made the platform a friendly space for conservative firebrands, allowing them to speak directly to their audience and bypass traditional media. However, aligning with Musk could also prove a burden for DeSantis, as the tech mogul has made controversial comments and turned Twitter into a safe haven for hate speech.[5] DeSantis enters the 2024 race in a strong position, consistently ranking second in nationwide polls of Republican candidates behind former President Donald Trump.[6] He has access to more than $110 million in campaign funds left over from his gubernatorial run.[7]
