DeSantis was re-elected as governor of Florida in the November 2022 election and announced his campaign for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination on May 24. In polling for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, DeSantis is currently polling second to former President Donald Trump.

On July 25, DeSantis stated that if he was elected, he would consider giving a position in his administration to Democratic candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Though DeSantis called Kennedy “more liberal,” he also stated they are aligned on some issues such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and corruption.
