Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is officially entering the 2024 presidential race this week during a special event with Twitter owner Elon Musk.

The conversation between DeSantis and Musk will take place on Twitter at 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday, according to multiple reports. The conversation will be moderated by Republican donor David Sacks, who is supporter of DeSantis and a close ally of Musk.

The Daily Wire can confirm that the reports are accurate.

Musk seemingly confirmed the report on the platform by retweeting a Fox News reporter who shared the news.

A source close to Musk told NBC News that Musk believes that former President Donald Trump is not capable of winning the White House in 2024 and that DeSantis is. “He’s interested in the future, and he’s interested in winning again,” the person said.

The 44-year-old governor will then file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission which will officially launch his campaign.

Following the event on Twitter, DeSantis is expected to appear on Fox News to give his first post-announcement interview with Trey Gowdy at 8 p.m. EST on “Fox News Tonight.”

A source close to Musk told The Daily Wire that they believed that DeSantis’ announcement with Musk will “trump the manner in which other candidates have announced because the event will be seen by larger audience.”
