Exciting Announcement: Ron DeSantis Set to Join Elon Musk on Twitter Wednesday, Could it be a 2024 Presidential Run?

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to Announce 2024 Presidential Campaign


Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is set to announce his 2024 presidential campaign in a Twitter Spaces livestream with Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday evening. The announcement will be followed by a launch video, as per sources familiar with DeSantis’s plans. The decision to launch the campaign alongside Musk indicates DeSantis’s focus on culture war issues.

Musk’s Political Involvement

Although Musk has indicated that he won’t endorse any particular candidate, he has cultivated ties with Republicans, including House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. He has also encouraged his Twitter followers to vote for a GOP Congress and plans to spend a “non-trivial” amount on the 2024 presidential race through a “super moderate super-PAC.” It remains unclear whether Musk will support DeSantis directly.

Musk’s Opinion on Other Candidates

Musk has previously expressed support for DeSantis, calling him the GOP’s best hope to defeat President Joe Biden in 2024. He has also praised South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, who announced his own bid for the Republican nomination on Monday. However, he has been critical of Trump, calling him too old to run again.

Musk’s Polarizing Image

Musk remains a polarizing figure, and opinions about him are divided. While 36% of Americans have a favorable opinion of him, 33% have an unfavorable opinion, according to a Quinnipiac poll. In a survey conducted on his own site, 57.5% of users said he should step down from his role as CEO of Twitter.


With the announcement of his presidential campaign, DeSantis has signaled his intention to focus on culture war issues, and his partnership with Musk reflects his strategy. While Musk’s involvement in politics remains somewhat unclear, his opinions on different candidates will likely shape the 2024 presidential race.
