The Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis Quit the Presidential Race

The Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis dropped out of the Republican Presidential race on Sunday, posting a video on X and endorsing Donald Trump. The surprise video announcement comes ahead of this week’s Republican primary in New Hampshire where Governor DeSantis was polling third in New Hampshire according to an article published by CNBC on January 21, 2024. His departure leaves Nikki Haley as former President Donald Trump’s only rival.

In his speech to his supporters on X, Governor DeSantis said “If there was anything I could do to produce a favorable outcome more campaign stops more interviews I would do it, but I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time and donate their resources if we do not have a clear path to victory accordingly, I am today suspending my campaign

He also endorsed former President Donald Trump by saying “It is clear to me that a majority of Republican primary voters want to give Donald Trump another chance they watch his presidency get stymied by relentless resistance and they see democrat using lawfare this day to attack him, I have disagreements with Donald Trump such as on Coronavirus pandemic and elevation of Anthony Fauci Trump is superior to the incumbent President Joe Biden that’s clear

Trump reacted to Governor Desanti's suspension of his campaign in a rally in New Hampshire by saying “As you know he left the campaign trail today at 300 p.m. and in so doing he was very gracious and he endorsed me so I appreciate it”

Nikki Haley reacted to Governor DeSantis in an interview with CNN on January 21 2024 by saying “I think Ron ran a good race I know it is personal to get into a race and it is personal to get out of a race he’s been a good governor and he added a lot to the campaign and we wish him well

Governor DeSantis’s withdrawal comes before the New Hampshire Republican primary vote. Iowa was the first state for the republican primary whereas Governor De Santis was the second by 21.2% points behind former president Donald Trump 51.0% according to The New York Times Iwa caucus results published on January 17, 2024.
