Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Wednesday evening that he is running for President of the United States.
DeSantis filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission earlier in the afternoon and released his official launch video at 6 p.m. EST on the platform.
“Our border is a disaster. Crime infests our cities. The federal government makes it harder for families to make ends meet. And the president flounders,” DeSantis said in the video. “But decline is a choice. Success is attainable. And freedom is worth fighting for.”
“Righting the ship requires restoring sanity to our society, normalcy to our communities, and integrity to our institutions. Truth must be our foundation — and common sense can no longer be an uncommon virtue. In Florida, we proved that it can be done,” he continued. “We chose facts over fear, education over indoctrination, law and order over rioting and disorder. We held the line when freedom hung in the balance.”
“We showed that we can — and must — revitalize America. We need the courage to lead and the strength to win,” he concluded. “I’m Ron DeSantis, and I’m running for president to lead our Great American Comeback.”

DeSantis also joined a special event on Twitter with the platform’s owner, Elon Musk, which received such intense interest that it crashed the event due to the servers being overloaded.

“The servers are straining somewhat,” Musk said at one point as 700,000+ people logged into the event.
