(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Monday night Vivek Ramaswamy announced that he would drop out of the 2024 Republican primary race following the disappointing results of the Iowa caucuses. He has been the latest candidate to drop out of the previously crowded race which is dominated by former President Donald Trump.
Following the results on Monday night, Ramaswamy told his supporters that he would be suspending his presidential campaign. One of the attendees had interjected and called for Ramaswamy to not drop out, to which Ramaswamy had stated that as he has always said there were two America First candidates in the presidential race. He added that earlier that evening he had called former President Donald Trump to congratulate him on his impressive victory in Iowa and had told him that he would have his full endorsement for the White House.
Only days before Ramaswamy announced his exit from the race, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had also announced that he would be dropping out of the presidential race. Last year both former Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Tim Scott (S.C) decided to withdraw from the race.
Ramaswamy was the first Republican millennial to have tried to win the presidential nomination. Originally he was considered to be a long-shot candidate but he had gained some momentum during the primary. However, he was unable to gain enough backing to face not only former President Donald Trump but also former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
