Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has not filed to run for president in 2024.
An April 8 filing on the Federal Election Commission’s (FEC) website led to reports that DeSantis had declared his candidacy but the filing has signs indicating it is a fake, including missing the capital “S” in DeSantis in several places.
The form listed South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem as the vice presidential candidate. However, running mates are typically not named until after a candidate has won their party’s nomination for president.
DeSantis’ office and the FEC have been contacted for comment.
