TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The video attached to this story is from a previous, unrelated report.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is rebranding his Twitter account ahead of the anticipated announcement that he is running for president.
It's just in time for a Twitter conversation with Elon Musk, where NBC News reports he will launch is campaign.
DeSantis's handle was previously @RonDeSantisFL, but he has dropped the abbreviation for his home state. His page is now simply @RonDeSantis.
He still holds his account where he tweets in his official capacity as mayor, @GovRonDeSantis.
DeSantis' candidacy is timed to coincide with a filing with the Federal Election Commission to make his run official, as well as a gathering in Miami of some of his top donors, according to CBS News. Sources told the outlet an official announcement is likely to happen thereafter in the governor's Tampa Bay-area hometown of Dunedin, Florida.
The governor's political operation on Monday vacated the Florida Republican Party's headquarters and moved into a new office in Tallahassee, CBS News reported, which trigged a federal campaign law that requires DeSantis to register as a candidate within the next two weeks.
A video will likely be published while announcing his candidacy, followed by several events in states whose primary voters will select their party's nominee, according to The New York Times.
