Former U.S. President, Donald Trump is leading in the race for the U.S. Republican nomination for the election in 2024.
This is as the Main declared candidates in the race for the U.S. Republican presidential nomination for the elections in 2024 are shown in a glance.
Florida’s Republican Party governor, Ron DeSantis, has officially entered next year’s presidential election, vying to face the presumptive Democratic Party nominee, incumbent President Joe Biden. But he will first have to vanquish a one-time ally and now formidable foe: the former president, Donald Trump.
DeSantis’ first words as a presidential candidate were delayed when a 90-minute Twitter Spaces audio chat, with hundreds of thousands of online listeners Wednesday evening, suffered multiple technical glitches, including long periods of silence when neither the moderator, the candidate nor Twitter’s owner, Elon Musk, could be heard.
There was a smoother rollout of DeSantis’ first campaign video in which he declared: “I’m running for president to lead our great American comeback.”
Polls show the Florida governor, who is 44, running a distant second to Trump, who turns 77 next month.
