Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Ends His Campaign for President

Florida Gov. RonDeSantis dropped his bid for president on Sunday, leaving just one prominent Republican challenger to former President Donald Trump.

DeSantis made his announcement via video posted to X, formerly Twitter, the same platform where his campaign had a glitch-filled rollout last May. 

DeSantis endorsed Trump in the video, while saying that Nikki Haley represents a "warmed over corporatism" that the GOP cannot return to.

Haley, the former South Carolina Governor, is now the only major candidate standing between Trump and his third consecutive Republican nomination.

New Hampshire Primary

Tuesday's New Hampshire primary will give us some indication of whether Haley has any chance to slow Trump's progress.  It is polling as one of the most competitive primaries, although some of that appears to be driven by the ability of independents to participate. This nonaligned group makes up nearly 40% of the electorate.

As of Sunday evening, Trump was averaging just under 51%, with Haley at 38% in the 270toWin New Hampshire Polling Average.
