Ron DeSantis is formally out of the presidential race … and he is not precisely going out on a limb together with his endorsement.
The Florida governor posted a four-minute vid to X telling his supporters he is suspending his marketing campaign — this, simply two days earlier than the New Hampshire major — and finally he is placing his help behind former President Donald Trump.
RD began his clip by repeating many conservative stances on points — extra border safety, social decay in cities, indoctrination of kids by woke ideology … principally the boilerplate message.
DeSantis stated his workforce prayed after the loss in Iowa — the place Trump crushed him on the voting cubicles, with greater than double Ron’s vote depend — and his workforce finally realized there’s nothing that’ll swing the race of their favor.
As for the endorsement … the 45-year-old acknowledged he is disagreed with DT on coverage prior to now, however he is placing that apart for the nice of the get together — principally saying 4 extra years of Joe Biden within the White House is not acceptable.
Hitching your wagon to the frontrunner ain’t something new in politics — it is all a part of the sport. And RD’s stayed away from roasting Trump through the run-up to the primaries … in contrast to Nikki Haley, the final main opposition to the Donald.
Speaking of NH, it isn’t stunning she’s not getting Ron’s help … not solely did she end third in Iowa and fall means behind Trump within the polls, however they confronted off on the final Republican debate — and it bought a little bit nasty.
Ron stated Nikki’s solely in it for what her monetary backers need … Nikki straight up referred to as Ron a liar — yeah, it bought fairly intense.
With one other candidate down and the polls swung wildly in Trump’s favor ya gotta marvel … how for much longer till the primaries merely change into formalities?
