Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his withdrawal from the American presidential race after deciding to run as a Republican.
He stated on X platform, "Today, I am suspending my election campaign."
With DeSantis' withdrawal, Nikki Haley, the former US Ambassador to the United Nations, becomes the sole candidate standing in the way of Trump's Republican nomination for the upcoming US presidential elections in November, according to The Washington Post.
It is worth noting that DeSantis was previously a prominent Republican contender against Donald Trump.
The decision comes less than two days before the primary elections in New Hampshire, as polls showed him trailing significantly behind the frontrunner Trump and Haley.
