Gov. Ron DeSantis withdrew from 2024 presidential race and endorsed Donald Trump on Sunday

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis withdrew from the 2024 presidential campaign Sunday afternoon in a video posted to X, formerly known as Twitter. DeSantis took second in Iowa last week on caucus night.

"Now, following our second place finish in Iowa, we've prayed and deliberating on the way forward," 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 don't have a clear path to victory."

He continued, "This is America's time for choosing. We can choose to allow a border invasion, or we can choose to stop it. We can choose reckless borrowing and spending, or we can choose to limit government and lower inflation. We can choose political indoctrination, or we can choose classical education."

After the suspension of his campaign, DeSantis added, "It's clear to me that a majority of Republican primary voters want to give Donald Trump another chance."

"While I've had disagreements with Donald Trump, such as on the coronavirus pandemic, and his elevation of Anthony Fauci, Trump is superior to the current incumbent, Joe Biden. That is clear," DeSantis continued. "I signed a pledge to support the Republican nominee, and I will honor that pledge. He has my endorsement because we can't go back to the old Republican guard of yesteryear."
