Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to Officially Declare 2024 Presidential Candidacy Next Week

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is expected to officially declare his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race next week, according to reports from CBS News and CNN.[0] DeSantis, who has long been expected to run, has reportedly been responding to donors and supporters anxious to see him enter the race and more directly challenge former President Donald Trump.[1] In a call with donors, DeSantis stated that he is one of only three “credible” options in contention for the White House in 2024, alongside Biden and Trump, but claimed that Trump’s chances of winning were “not great.”[2] DeSantis is expected to file formal paperwork with the Federal Election Commission next week and make a formal announcement the following week in his hometown of Dunedin, Florida.[3] The governor has spent the last few weeks signing bills, meeting with donors, and shoring up endorsements to boost his launch. DeSantis is known to surprise even his closest allies with last-minute changes, but dozens of his top fundraisers and donors have already been summoned to South Florida under the assumption that they will be asked to begin building up a war chest for a DeSantis presidential campaign.[1] The governor is expected to lay out his vision for the country and respond to Trump’s broadsides once he is officially a candidate.
