Ron DeSantis withdraws from the presidential contest and supports Trump

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has endorsed Donald Trump and withdrew from the 2024 presidential contest. In New Hampshire, where he was polling in the single digits, he announced his resignation prior to the Republican primary election. Though he had previously been seen as a formidable opponent for the party’s nomination, Mr. DeSantis declared on Sunday that he did not “have a clear path to victory”. The final contender for Mr. Trump, Nikki Haley, declared that she was the “only one” capable of defeating US President Joe Biden.

Tuesday’s contest in New Hampshire between Ms. Haley and Mr. Trump is the second in a series of state-by-state races to select the Republican nominee for the general election in November. In a video that was posted on Sunday afternoon on X, previously Twitter, Mr. DeSantis claimed that his campaign had “left it all out on the field” and lasted close to five minutes. As he concluded his seven-month campaign, he said, “If there was anything I could do to produce a favourable outcome – more campaign stops, more interviews – I would do it.”

The governor of Florida announced that he was supporting Mr. Trump, who has emerged as the overwhelming favorite following his 51% victory in the first contest in Iowa. It’s evident, according to Mr. DeSantis, that most Republican voters “want to give Donald Trump another chance.” Despite stating that Mr. Trump was “superior” than Mr. Biden—who is almost guaranteed to be the Democratic nominee in November’s general election—he acknowledged having “disagreements” with the former president. When Mr. Trump announced Mr. DeSantis’s withdrawal and endorsement to a packed group of supporters on Sunday afternoon in New Hampshire, there were thunderous applause.
