Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to make his entry into the 2024 presidential campaign official next week, three people familiar with the planning tell CBS News.

His plans to file papers with the Federal Election Commission formalizing his presidential candidacy is timed to coincide with a Miami gathering of some of the governor’s most generous longtime donors, who are expected to receive briefings on campaign strategy and requests to help raise significant sums of cash for his bid, three people familiar with the plans said.

A more formal kickoff event is expected to be held closer to June 1, according to those familiar with his plans. It is likely to occur in DeSantis’s hometown of Dunedin, Fla., sources familiar with the plans said.
