Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis changed his Twitter account handle Monday as he inches toward an expected presidential bid, the Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
DeSantis‘ political account that he utilized for his Florida gubernatorial campaigns was previously “@RonDeSantisFL.” The governor dropped the “FL” from his handle, suggesting that a presidential announcement is coming.
When asked if the handle change is a sign that the governor may soon throw his hat into the presidential race, a senior DeSantis political team official told the DCNF to “stay tuned.” (RELATED: State Lawmakers Dish On Why They Switched Sides From Trump To DeSantis: ‘I Believe He Can Bring This Country Back’)
