Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is a contender for Time magazine’s 2022 Person of the Year, according to USA Today.

The magazine released a 10-person candidate list on Monday based on “who they felt had the most influence on the world this year,” the report said.

In no particular order, here are all the 10 finalists: Liz Cheney, Ron DeSantis, Gun Safety Advocates, Xi Jinping, Elon Musk, Protesters in Iran, MacKenzie Scott, The U.S. Supreme Court, Janet Yellen and Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Time magazine will reveal the winner on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
