Ron DeSantis will launch his presidential bid Wednesday on Twitter, NBC News reports.
The far-right Florida Republican governor will appear on Twitter Spaces with the social media company’s CEO Elon Musk at 6 p.m. ET Wednesday.
The event will be moderated by tech reporter David Sacks, a Musk confidant and DeSantis backer.
The campaign will also release a video Wednesday evening and DeSantis will visit early-voting states after Memorial Day.
NBC News’ Dasha Burns and Matt Dixon wrote: “The relationship could be a significant boost for DeSantis by giving him an introduction to, and credibility with, Musk’s massive following — including his 140 million Twitter followers.
"But it could prove a burden should DeSantis become distracted by the tycoon’s many controversial comments.”
