In a shocking twist, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has thrown in the towel, ending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. And who does he endorse as his successor in the race? None other than the incredible, the unbeatable, the one and only former President Donald Trump!
In a video released from sunny Florida, DeSantis made his endorsement clear. Despite some minor disagreements, he believes that Trump is head and shoulders above the competition, including former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. DeSantis knows that Trump is the only one who can take on the current Democratic President Joe Biden and come out on top.
In his video, DeSantis candidly admitted the challenges he faced after his disappointing second-place finish in Iowa. He had heartfelt discussions with his family and team about the path forward, and ultimately decided that continuing the campaign without a clear shot at victory just wouldn’t be fair to his loyal supporters.
And so, with a heavy heart but a renewed sense of purpose, DeSantis suspended his campaign and threw his full support behind Trump. He knows that the majority of Republican primary voters are itching to give Trump another chance, and he’s proud to stand with them.
DeSantis didn’t hold back in his criticisms of Nikki Haley and the so-called “old Republican guard.” He’s fed up with their warmed-over corporatism and the lack of backbone they show when it comes to standing up to the Democrats. DeSantis knows that Trump is the true warrior, the one who never backed down in the face of relentless resistance.
The reaction to DeSantis’s decision has been overwhelmingly positive among top Republicans. Senator Marsha Blackburn, a strong supporter of Trump, praised DeSantis’s endorsement. With DeSantis now out of the race, Haley is left as the only serious challenger to Trump. The stakes in the New Hampshire primary have never been higher for her.

Haley will need to prove herself by defeating Trump and securing a clear victory if she wants to keep her campaign alive. She’s got Governor Chris Sununu in her corner, who previously suggested that a second-place finish would be a win for Haley. But with DeSantis’s departure, everything has changed. New Hampshire is now a battleground, and Haley’s future hangs in the balance. Will Trump secure an early victory, or will Haley manage to pull off an upset? Only time will tell.
