Ron DeSantis is set to announce his run for president tomorrow night on Twitter in a conversation with Elon Musk after months of speculation.
Sources confirmed to DailyMail.com that the Florida Governor will hold a Twitter Spaces with the social media giant’s CEO on Wednesday at 6pm ET to confirm he is entering the race to set up a showdown with Donald Trump.
At the age of 44 he is one of the younger candidates to launch a bid for the Oval Office and is more than three decades younger than his main rivals President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.
The long-anticipated start of the Republican’s White House campaign will be moderated by David Sacks, a tech entrepreneur who is close to Musk.
Musk confirmed Tuesday that he will be interviewing DeSantis in the live audio-only event, adding that the governor has ‘quite an announcement to make’ but at this time he is not planning to endorse a particular candidate.
‘But I am interested in X/Twitter being a public town square where more and more organizations host content and make announcements on Twitter,’ Musk continued.
Father-of-three DeSantis’ campaign will then release a campaign video, and he is then expected to start touring states early in the primary process after Memorial Day.

The blockbuster announcement also coincides with DeSantis meeting with donors in Miami. NBC first reported the news of the governor’s anticipated announcement.
Former President Donald Trump, who announced his reelection bid last November, has already come out swinging against DeSantis.
Trump posted on Truth Social following reports that the governor is poised to officially enter the race, promoting stories including a piece by American conservative TV host Wayne Root titled ‘Ron DeSantis, Please STAND DOWN for the good of the GOP and America.’
The former president also shared a YouTube poll that showed Trump ahead of DeSantis by 53 points.
Trump previously urged DeSantis not to run against him in 2024 because he’s not doing well in the polls, will divide the Republican party and ‘lose the cherished and massive’ MAGA vote.
But according to recent polls, DeSantis is still firmly in second place over the likes of other announced GOP primary candidates Ambassador Nikki Haley, Sen. Tim Scott and Vivek Ramaswamy.
In some states, Trump has a double-digit lead over DeSantis who dismissed talk of a White House run as long as the Florida legislature was in session.
The ex-president also has called DeSantis ‘young’ and suggested that he might have a more bright political future if he remains governor of Florida to the end of his second term in 2026.
It was widely expected that DeSantis would officially enter the 2024 race once his state’s legislative session ended at the start of May.
During the session, he has signed a six-week abortion ban, expanded a bill outlawing teaching gender identity and sexual orientation in public school and cracked down on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investments.
Tougher immigration laws and carrying concealed weapons without a permit have also been approved into law under the governor’s leadership.
Away from his work in Florida, he has been traveling the country promoting his book ‘The Courage to Be Free’ and visited early states in the primary including Iowa and New Hampshire.
On Monday night he showed off his potential White House credentials by teasing he would pick a seventh conservative Supreme Court justice.
He also hinted he would be in office for eight years.

He was speaking at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention, held in Orlando, and said 2024 was an election that could determine the makeup of the Supreme Court for the next 25 years.
DeSantis said that four Supreme Court justices could retire in the next eight years: Clarence Thomas, 74; Samuel Alito, 73; Chief Justice John Roberts, 68; and Sonia Sotomayor, 68.
Trump and his allies have already been attacking DeSantis from multiple angles ahead of the formal announcement.
They have criticized him for locking Florida down during COVID and have claimed Trump’s support was the main reason he was elected governor in 2018.
