Florida Governor DeSantis quits presidential race and backs Trump

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has withdrawn from the 2024 presidential race just two days before the New Hampshire primary, citing a lack of a clear path to victory. DeSantis endorsed former President Donald Trump, acknowledging that a majority of Republican primary voters prefer giving Trump another chance. This decision follows DeSantis’ significant loss to Trump in the Iowa caucuses, where Trump led with 51 percent, and DeSantis secured second place with 21 percent. With DeSantis out, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley remains as Trump’s last long-shot challenger for the Republican nomination. Trump holds a double-digit lead over Haley in New Hampshire polls, and his campaign aims for a consecutive win to solidify his eventual nomination. Despite facing four criminal prosecutions, Trump maintains strong support among Republicans. Haley received cheers when announcing DeSantis’ withdrawal at a campaign event. The Trump campaign expressed gratitude for DeSantis’ endorsement and urged Republicans to unite behind Trump, characterizing Haley as the candidate of globalists and Democrats. The winner of the Republican nominating contests will face President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee.
