Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) responded on Wednesday to Elon Musk’s tweet earlier in the day saying he was leaning toward supporting DeSantis for president in 2024.
The tech billionaire, who serves as CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, announced last month he had struck a deal to purchase Twitter, however he has since threatened to pull out.
Musk and Twitter have been in a standoff over the company’s claims about the share of bot accounts on the platform, although Twitter reportedly is complying with Musk’s demands for additional internal data.
Musk on Wednesday also responded to another user saying he supported Andrew Yang for president in 2020, but now thinks DeSantis “has a better chance of winning.”
The Florida governor is a leading GOP contender for the 2024 presidential race. He won a straw poll at the Western Conservative Summit earlier this month, with his approval rating clocking in slightly higher than former President Trump.
