Ron DeSantis officially running for president

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his presidential candidacy on Wednesday, setting him on a potential collision course with former President Donald Trump in the race for the Republican Party’s nomination. DeSantis was set to personally announce his campaign during a Twitter conversation with Elon Musk, but the site crashed repeatedly and suffered numerous other massive glitches, forcing an announcement on a separate Twitter stream with fewer listeners. The long-awaited announcement marks the culmination of years of buzz around the Republican darling, whose resistance to Covid-era lockdown rules and willingness to engage in polarizing cultural fights have garnered attention. DeSantis’ announcement also officially marks his simmering rivalry with Trump, burying their once-close relationship as some in the GOP look to replace the former president as their party’s standard bearer. The move was hardly a surprise, with DeSantis considered as a presidential contender even before the end of the 2020 election cycle. The Florida Governor’s announcement has raised questions about Trump’s dominance over the GOP and his ability to maintain the party’s support.

“Governor Ron DeSantis declares candidacy for presidential election”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has announced his candidacy for the 2024 US presidential election, setting himself on a collision course with former President Donald Trump in the race for the Republican Party’s nomination. DeSantis was originally scheduled to make a formal announcement during a Twitter Spaces conversation with Elon Musk, but was forced to switch to a second stream which peaked at over 300,000 listeners due to technical issues. Despite the bumpy start, DeSantis’ press secretary, Bryan Griffin, claimed the technical issues merely served to highlight the high levels of enthusiasm for the candidate, with the campaign raising $1m online within an hour. DeSantis made the announcement after signing a bill that relaxed Florida’s so-called resign-to-run law, which was designed to prevent officials running for multiple positions simultaneously.

DeSantis has been touted as a leading contender for the Republican nomination, having spent recent months publishing a political memoir, hosting events for donors and conservative groups, embarking on a multi-state speaking tour, and releasing campaign-style videos touting his achievements in Florida. However, polls of potential primary voters have shown that, in a hypothetical match-up of the field, DeSantis has consistently lost ground to Donald Trump. A Quinnipiac University poll released a day before his announcement showed Republican and Republican-leaning voters choosing Trump by a margin of over two-to-one over DeSantis, with Trump extending his lead from a survey in March.
