Florida Governor Ron DeSantis suspends presidential campaign

US News

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – once tipped as Donald Trump’s biggest challenger for the Republican presidential nomination – has suspended his campaign.

It comes after Trump won a resounding victory in the Republican Party’s Iowa caucuses, with DeSantis only narrowly beating his nearest rival, Nikki Haley.

He said following the result and “deliberation” with his campaign team, that he struggled to see a “clear path to victory” in the race.

DeSantis made the announcement in a video on the social media platform X, formerly Twitter, on Sunday night, saying: “We left it all out on the field.”
