TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to make a “major announcement” sometime on Thursday morning, his spokesperson said.
The governor is holding a 10 a.m. press conference with Attorney General Ashley Moody on the premises of the Falkenburg Road Jail, but it’s unclear if he will make the announcement there.
In a tweet, DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw said the governor plans to make a “major announcement” and told her followers to “prepare for the liberal media meltdown of the year.”
“Everyone get some rest tonight,” Pushaw added.
Her social media tease comes as the governor strengthens his hold on the Republican party. Polls have showed DeSantis and former President Donald Trump neck and neck in a hypothetical 2024 GOP presidential contest.
“He’s running for president, isn’t he? ” one person said in response to Pushaw’s tweet.
“I for one hope he doesn’t run for POTUS yet—Florida still needs him,” another added.
But Pushaw said the governor would not be making a campaign announcement.
“I’m a state spokesperson, so I don’t see internal polls. I can tell you this is an official announcement not a campaign one,” Pushaw said on Twitter.
“All I can say about the surprise announcement tomorrow is that it’s not about anything campaign related,” she added. “It’s official business.”
