The New Hampshire primary election lands tomorrow, Jan. 23 – the first in a series of statewide primary elections that will determine which Republican and Democratic candidates will appear on the 2024 presidential ballot in November.

Yesterday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis dropped out of the 2024 presidential race, leaving former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley as the only other major Republican candidate going up against Donald Trump in the primary elections.

Despite disagreements inside his own party keeping him off the New Hampshire primary ballot, President Joe Biden is still the leading candidate to snag the Democratic slot in the November presidential election.

‘One fella and one lady left’ in the Republican primary elections

Upon dropping out of the presidential race, DeSantis stated in a video he posted to social media on Sunday that he did not have a clear path to victory.

“If there was anything I could do to produce a favorable outcome − more campaign stops, more interviews − I would do it,” DeSantis said. “But I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time and donate their resources if we don’t have a clear path to victory.”

The governor lent his endorsement to Donald Trump, stating that, “We can’t go back to the old Republican guard of yesteryear − a repackaged form of warmed-over corporatism − that Nikki Haley represents.”

DeSantis narrowly defeated Haley by two points for second place in the Iowa caucuses, coming in 30 points behind front-runner Trump.

DeSantis’s departure means Haley will go head-to-head with Trump in the upcoming primary elections.

“It’s now one fella and one lady left,” Haley said at a campaign event in Seabrook, New Hampshire, shortly after the news that DeSantis dropped out of the 2024 race.
