Ron DeSantis makes his challenge to Trump official and runs for White House backed by Elon Musk

It is now official what had been a done deal for months: Ron DeSantis launches his candidacy to reach the White House. The governor of Florida has registered this Wednesday the documents to run in the Republican Party primaries and become Donald Trump’s main rival in that race to the Oval Office. In addition, DeSantis has, among others, the support of Elon Musk, with whom he will hold in the coming hours a conversation on Twitter Spaces, owned precisely by the tycoon.

“There may be a scenario in which DeSantis is the favorite to be the Republican candidate.”commented experts consulted by 20minutes months ago, when the Florida governor revalidated with much sufficiency his position in the MidTerm. There his name went straight to the front page, even amid criticism from Trump himself, who nicknamed him “Ron the self-righteous”. The former president, in any case, continues to be the Republican favorite in the polls that have been published in recent weeks.

Should he win those primaries, DeSantis would be the challenger to current White House occupant Joe Biden.who has already confirmed that he will run again to complete, if he wins, his eight years at the head of the U.S. Government. The elections will be held in 2024.

If you zoom in on the AI-generated image, you can see how the supposed Pentagon building has a somewhat suspicious facade.

DeSantis is thus aiming to unseat Trump, his former mentor, as the Republican candidate for the White House. Other leading Republican figures such as former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scottformer Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, or businessman Vivek Ramaswamy have also confirmed their candidacy.

Born in Jacksonville (Florida) in 1978, Ron DeSantis studied history at Yale University. -where he was captain of the baseball team, and then entered Harvard Law School. During his second year of law school, he was an officer in the Navy’s General Counsel’s Office. Then, in 2012, he already entered politics, when he was elected to the House of Representatives. He helped found the Freedom Caucus (far-right conservatives). Re-elected in 2016, he left in 2018 to become governor of Florida. Since then he has emerged as one of the most relevant Republican leaders at the national level. Now he launches himself towards his most complicated challenge… against who has been his political reference in recent years.
