Former President Donald Trump was in Dayton, Ohio on Monday night headlining a rally for Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance, and there were rumors that he would announce a 2024 bid during the speech. Opinions varied:

NEW: A source close to President Trump tells me it is basically a “coin flip” as to whether Trump announces his run for President tonight. No final decision has been made on the possible announcement tonight. @DailyCaller

DeSantis expected to roll up historic numbers tomorrow night, winning the Hispanic vote outright and taking the governorship by a record number of votes. Not surprising that talk around Trump is about an imminent ‘24 announcement to step on DeSantis’ historic night.

Suspicion: Trump isn’t going to announce tonight, but by hinting at it, he ensures every network covers the rally.

Why would Trump announce he’s running for president today only to get that stepped on by DeSantis winning by double digits and whatever else happens tomorrow? That makes no sense.

Trump’s speech ended up answering those questions. And that answer is… that Trump will be making an announcement a week from Tuesday in Mar-a-Lago in Florida:
Trump announces tonight that he will be making a “big” announcement at Mar-A-Lago on November 15th, adds that he does not want to detract from the importance of the mid term elections tomorrow.
