Florida “Strong Man” DeSantis Bows Out Of Presidential Race

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has bowed out of the 2024 presidential race and endorsed Donald Trump.

DeSantis dubbed as ‘Trump lite’ quit ahead of the Republican primary election in New Hampshire, where he failed to gain traction beyond single digits in polling.

The Florida governor was once considered a leading contender for the party’s nomination – but on Sunday he confessed he did not “have a clear path to victory”.

The move by DeSantis to drop out of the race has left Nikki Haley as the lone star to take out Trump, her former boss.

Haley said she was the “only one” able to beat U.S. President Joe Biden.

Haley will go head-to-head with former President Trump in New Hampshire on Tuesday, the second in a series of state-by-state contests to pick a Republican nominee for the November general election.

In a nearly five-minute long video on X, formerly Twitter, released on Sunday afternoon, Mr. DeSantis said his campaign had “left it all out on the field”.

“If there was anything I could do to produce a favorable outcome – more campaign stops, more interviews – I would do it,” he added, as he ended his seven-month campaign.

The Florida governor said he was endorsing Mr. Trump, who is the clear frontrunner after winning the first contest in Iowa with 51% of the vote.

Mr. DeSantis said it had become clear that a majority of Republican voters “want to give Donald Trump another chance.”
