Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has a big-name supporter for a possible presidential run in 2024: Elon Musk.

Musk came out for the sunshine state gov in a brief Twitter conversation Friday night with the account @ProudElephantUS, who asked if he would back DeSantis.

“Yes.” Musk replied, before adding, “But Twitter as a platform must be fair to all.”

Musk replied back to a Twitter user when was if he would back Gov. DeSantis.

Though Musk has insisted he does not identify as a conservative, he publicly urged his 119 million Twitter followers to vote Republican in the 2022 midterm elections and has raised ire from liberal users for reinstating right-wing accounts — including that of former President Trump.

“As a reminder, I was a significant supporter of the Obama-Biden presidency and (reluctantly) voted for Biden over Trump,” Musk said. “My preference for the 2024 presidency is someone sensible and centrist. I had hoped that would the case for the Biden administration, but have been disappointed so far.”
