Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has ended his 2024 presidential campaign ahead of the New Hampshire primary election, according to The Associated Press.
DeSantis, 45, has endorsed former President Donald Trump, according to The New York Times.
“I am today suspending my campaign,” DeSantis said in a video, according to the Times. “Trump is superior to the current incumbent, Joe Biden. That is clear. 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.”
“Winston Churchill once remarked that success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. While this campaign has ended, the mission continues down here in Florida. We will continue to show the country, how to lead. Thank you and God bless,” DeSantis said, according to CNN.
