Count Joe Rogan among the many people who see Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as the best option for president in 2024.
Actress Gina Carano asked Rogan if he was ready to endorse a candidate for 2024. Rogan, the former Bernie Sanders supporter, responded by saying DeSantis would be a good fit.

Here's the transcript:
Carano: “Are you throwing out any support towards anyone or are you gonna hold off? “
Rogan: “I think Ron DeSantis would work as a good president. I mean, what he’s done for Florida has been admirable.”
Carano: “I feel like I’m doing breaking news right now that wasn’t even on purpose,” Carano laughed.
Rogan: “I feel like what he did for Florida, a lot of people gave him a lot of grief, but ultimately he was correct. He was correct when it comes to like deaths, he was correct. And when it comes to protecting all vulnerable populations, he was correct in terms of distribution of monoclonal antibodies.”
Rogan's "endorsement" comes a couple of weeks after Musk announced he would be voting for DeSantis if he runs in 2024.
DeSantis had a classic response when he was informed of the support from Elon Musk.
Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis calls Elon Musk an African-American…I guess because Musk was born in South Africa…and DeSantis thinks he was making a joke? pic.twitter.com/7YW0UZo7kU
