The office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is set to make a “major” announcement Thursday morning, a spokesperson said.
Taking to Twitter Wednesday night, DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw teased the impact of the announcement and said it will cause the “liberal media meltdown of the year.”
“MAJOR announcement tomorrow morning from @GovRonDeSantis. Prepare for the liberal media meltdown of the year,” Pushaw wrote. “Everyone get some rest tonight.”
Some people immediately began speculating if the announcement concerns the 2024 presidential election, as the Florida governor is well-liked among Republican voters.
DeSantis consistently tops polls of potential 2024 Republican candidates, usually just behind former President Donald Trump.
After a user mentioned DeSantis’ lead in internal polling, Pushaw responded that the announcement would be an official one, not about his campaign.
Let’s go President DeSantis

In another tweet, Pushaw confirmed DeSantis is seeking re-election in Florida. A potential 2024 announcement would be particularly early and it would require DeSantis to be accountable to the Federal Election Commission between now and Election Day.
Another user asked if DeSantis would be traveling to Taiwan, in light of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to the region.
