Reports: Governor Ron DeSantis to launch White House bid Wednesday night

(Tallahassee, FL)  --  Ron DeSantis will launch his presidential bid with Elon Musk.  

Several reports say the Republican Florida governor will announce he is running for president live on Twitter Wednesday night in a conversation with Musk.  

DeSantis has been at odds with Disney and political insiders say his alignment with Musk makes sense, given the SpaceX and Twitter CEO's criticism of corporate media.  

DeSantis trails former President Trump by a wide margin in every poll.  

DeSantis served in the Navy and was first elected to Congress in 2012.  

DeSantis became governor in 2018.
