DeSantis Officially Files to Run for President—Teases a VERY Cool New Logo

On Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis filed the required paperwork to run for president.

DeSantis is expected to announce his bid to be the GOP nominee in an interview with Elon Musk on Twitter Spaces at 6 p.m. Eastern.


The governor enters a growing field of candidates who have announced their intentions to run. Via Ballotpedia:

  • Larry Elder (R), a talk radio host and 2021 California gubernatorial candidate, announced his candidacy on April 20, 2023.
  • Nikki Haley (R), former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina governor, announced she would run on February 14, 2023.
  • Asa Hutchinson (R), former Arkansas governor, announced he would run on April 2, 2023.
  • Vivek Ramaswamy (R), entrepreneur and political commentator, announced his campaign on February 21, 2023.
  • Tim Scott (R), a United States senator from South Carolina, announced his candidacy.
  • Corey Stapleton (R), former Montana Secretary of State, announced he would run on November 11, 2022.
  • Donald Trump (R), former U.S. President, announced he would run on November 15, 2022.

Most of these candidates are not serious contenders, and some, like Nikki Haley, are clearly vying to be Trump’s vice president. DeSantis, on the other hand, had been polling in double digits, even before entering the race. That said, Trump leads the pack by a whopping 34.4 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average.


Last night the DeSantis campaign began a slow rollout of what looks to be a campaign logo of sorts:


Trump has been aggressively attacking DeSantis for months — oddly, from the Left — and will no doubt escalate those attacks now that DeSantis is officially in the race. DeSantis, for his part, has ignored the taunts in favor of highlighting his conservative record as governor of Florida. It will be interesting to see whether DeSantis begins to hit back or if he will continue to focus on his own achievements.
