  • Ron DeSantis drops out of the presidential race.
  • He was lagging in the polls.
  • He endorses Trump.

The Republican primary race now comes down to Donald Trump and Nikki Haley, after some surprising news.

In an unexpected turn of events, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced on Sunday he is suspending his presidential campaign.

The surprising announcement comes just two days before the crucial Republican primary in New Hampshire.

In a statement released on social media, DeSantis revealed the reasons behind his surprising decision.

«I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time and donate their resources if we don’t have a clear path to victory. Accordingly, I am today suspending my campaign,» DeSantis said, according to CNN.

With this statement, the Republican contender put an end to speculation about his future in the race.

This leaves two contenders for the Republican nomination.

The former U.S. President Donald Trump, and the former U.S. ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley.

DeSantis dropping out of the race marks a significant change in the electoral landscape, as many believed that his participation would bring additional dynamism to the presidential race.

His unexpected departure creates a clearer scenario with two prominent figures leading the fight for the Republican nomination.

The Florida governor, known for his extremely conservative approach to managing the COVID-19 pandemic, had been considered viable primary contender.

However, his decision to suspend his campaign has led to a rapid reconfiguration of the political chessboard.

Now, attention turns to how the confrontations between Trump and Haley will play out.

They are two figures with broad support within the Republican Party.

Trump, with his loyal base of followers, will seek to consolidate his support.

While Haley, with her diplomatic experience, will try to present a fresh alternative for Republican voters.

As Ron DeSantis drops out, the Republican race is experiencing a significant change.

This marks the beginning of a new phase in the race towards the 2024 presidential election.

The crossfire between Republican candidates increased a few days before the New Hampshire primary.

Nikki Haley has suggested that Donald Trump is not «mentally fit» for the position.

After sweeping the Iowa caucuses, Trump is the big favorite in the New Hampshire primary, but Haley’s campaign has focused on the state.

She is hoping to close the gap and establish herself as a viable alternative for the Republican Party, according to EFE.

A survey released today by Suffolk University and the Boston Globe puts Trump in the lead with 53% of the votes.

He is followed by Haley, with 36%. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came in last with 7%.

In a meeting with voters, Haley stepped up her harsh rhetoric, saying Trump, 77, is «mentally fit» to return to the White House.

She said this after Trump confused Nikki Haley with Nancy Pelosi several times during a speech.

«When you’re 80, that’s what happens. You’re just not as sharp as you used to be. We need the person who occupies the position to be at the top of their abilities,» said Haley, 51.

Trump responded at an election rally in Manchester, where he pointed out that he is actually 77 years old and that he is better than ever.
