Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has officially announced his campaign for reelection in 2022. While those in Florida may be celebrating his bid for reelection, Republicans across the US had hoped DeSantis would run against Biden, if Trump chose not to, in the 2024 Presidential election amidst his heightening popularity.

On Friday, DeSantis filed his statement of candidacy and entered the race for Governor as the 16th candidate. Under the slogan “Keep Florida Free”, DeSantis assures his supporters that his fight has only just begun.

This announcement comes just over a month after DeSantis publically announced that his wife, Casey, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
