Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis drops out of 2024 presidential race, endorses Trump --DeSantis suspends his 2024 GOP presidential campaign six days after a distant second place finish in Iowa and two days ahead of the New Hampshire primary | 21 Jan 2024 | Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis dropped out of the 2024 Republican presidential race and endorsed former President Donald Trump two days before the New Hampshire primary. The Florida governor announced his decision to drop out in a social media video on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday afternoon... "It's clear to me that a majority of Republican primary voters want to give Donald Trump another chance," DeSantis continued. "They watched his presidency get stymied by relentless resistance, and they see Democrats using lawfare this day to attack him." Trump, who along with his allies spent months fiercely attacking DeSantis, told Fox News Digital that he was "very honored to have his endorsement." "I look forward to working together with him to beat Joe Biden, who is the worst and most corrupt president in the history of our country," he argued.
