Ron DeSantis Enters 2024 Presidential Race

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has joined the 2024 presidential race. His campaign filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission Wednesday afternoon, to be followed by an official announcement during a Twitter Spaces audio livestream interview at 6:00 PM Eastern Time.

To listen to the livestream, visit on a web browser or open the Twitter app on your phone.

DeSantis released this video late Wednesday afternoon.

As CNN reports, "It makes official a decision that was widely expected since November, when DeSantis won reelection in resounding fashion and captured the attention of a party longing to turn the page from recent defeats. He steps into the race for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination months later than other contenders but is better funded, better known and polling higher than all but one: Donald Trump.

DeSantis is averaging 21% support in recent national Republican nomination polling. This place him in second place, far behind former President Donald Trump (56%), but well ahead of numerous other actual or prospective candidates, none of whom are averaging more than 5%.
