U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said on Thursday night that people were "more excited about Elon Musk" than about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis during the latter's announcement on Twitter about his 2024 presidential campaign.

Boebert, who also made news earlier on Thursday when she implied that the Biden administration's vow to "fight hate" and antisemitism equated to a promise that they are "going after" conservatives, said in a live Twitter Spaces event that she is "not a DeSantis hater" but wants him to wait until 2028 to make his run for the office of presidency. The event also featured Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).

Boebert also said she was present at the Twitter Spaces event that infamously crashed while DeSantis announced his executive ambitions. She reiterated that people were more excited to hear from Musk than DeSantis, and more eager to ask Musk questions.

Boebert also said she thinks there's a "potential for reconciliation" after the Republican primary between Trump and DeSantis, even going as far as to compare the situation to the previous primary conflict between the former president and Sen. Ted Cruz.

"America is still in love with President Trump," she added.
