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.
