DeSantis drops out of 2024 presidential race, makes an endorsement

In a significant turn of events in the Republican presidential race, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his withdrawal from the contest, throwing his support behind 45th President Donald Trump. This decision, made public in a video statement on Sunday, came just before the New Hampshire primary.

Governor DeSantis, acknowledging his second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, where he led former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley but trailed significantly behind Trump, expressed in the video that continued campaigning seemed futile without a clear route to victory. “If there was anything I could do to produce a favorable outcome — more campaign stops, more interviews — I would do it,” DeSantis stated. “But I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time and donate their resources if we don’t have a clear path to victory. Accordingly, I am today suspending my campaign.”

Following this announcement, DeSantis formally endorsed Donald Trump. He cited a belief that many Republican voters are inclined to give Trump another term, despite their differences, particularly regarding the coronavirus pandemic and Dr. Anthony Fauci. DeSantis emphasized, “Trump is superior to the current incumbent, Joe Biden. That is clear.” He also criticized Nikki Haley, suggesting she represents an outdated version of the Republican Party that he contends places American interests last.

This move by DeSantis has been met with approval from prominent Republicans, including Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, who had previously urged both DeSantis and Haley to concede, allowing the party to unite behind Trump. Blackburn, speaking on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel, praised DeSantis’s decision as a step towards party unity.

With DeSantis exiting the race, Nikki Haley remains the only serious contender against Trump. The upcoming New Hampshire GOP primary is seen as critical for Haley, who must secure a win to sustain her campaign. Her decision to skip the Nevada caucuses only adds to the significance of the New Hampshire results. Governor Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, a key supporter of Haley, has been managing expectations by suggesting that even a second-place finish in the state would be a positive outcome for her. However, with DeSantis’s departure and Trump’s expected strong showing, Haley’s chances of halting Trump’s momentum appear increasingly slim.

  1. I like DeSantis. It just wasn’t his time, I see big goals happening for his future. Thank you DeSantis for your perseverance, your courage in standing for family values, your fight for the unborn and your patriotic values for our Nation. The best is yet to come for you, God speed.

    1. I absolutely agree with you RMG. I like DeSantis too. I mean, the guy has done great and wonderful things for Florida. He is truly America’s Governor, or one of America’s Governors. But yes, it’s not DeSantis’s time. Well, at least not yet. In 2028, I think it will be his time. But it’s not his time right now. It’s time for Trump and it’s time for Trump to come back to the presidency. He needs to win the election more than DeSantis right now. Especially after what happened to Trump in 2020, Trump needs redemption. But it’s not like I don’t like DeSantis. I like DeSantis. Really like him. He has done great and wonderful things for Florida. And he’s right about a lot of things, much like Trump is. I mean, DeSantis’s right about Nikki Haley. She does represent an outdated version of the Republican Party that places America last. In fact, Haley is actually not a real Republican, or she’s not a actual Republican at all. In fact, she’s actually been funded, bought and paid for by the Democrats and Democrats have actually supported her campaign. And the Democrats have actually admitted themselves that yes, they are supporting her campaign, a campaign to destroy Trump and prevent him from winning the presidency simply because he actually represents and stands up for the true, traditional, fundamental and constitutional values and beliefs and rights of the United States of America and because he’s pro-life and pro-school choice, anti-woke ideology, etc. Now, if Haley was in fact an actual and true Republican, she would not be doing that. Granted, she used to be a Trump supporter. Nikki Haley used to support him. But unfortunately, for whatever reason, she does not anymore. And if she is going to go after him simply because he represents the true values of the United States of America like freedom of speech and being pro-life, pro-Israel, pro-school choice, anti-woke ideology, etc. If Nikki Haley is going to target him simply because he supports those common sense policies and opposes the radical leftist policies of the Left and today’s Democratic Party that is destroying the United States and other countries right now, then she should not be in the race, let alone part of the Republican race for President. And that is the truth. I don’t wish death or harm on Nikki Haley. But, if she’s going to do that to Trump, then she shouldn’t be in the race, let alone be part of the Republican race for President. She’s not even a real Republican anyway. And that’s just the truth.

  2. Ron DeSantis seems like a good man. Florida still needs him though and I always thought he should honor that committment and run for president in the future. He sure tried though! He visited every single county in Iowa. He isn’t President Trump though but maybe he could be like him someday. President Trump isn’t perfect either but he seems to “get” America better than most other presidents we’ve had. Nikki needs to sit down and shut up. She hurts her reputation (and ours) more every time she opens her mouth. Ms Raytheon needs to find another hobby.
