The Florida governor threw in the towel in a video on the social media site X, where he also pledged his support for Trump. Once considered a top contender against the former president, DeSantis pulled out after slumping into the single digits in New Hampshire, two days before the state's primary election.

"He (Trump) has my endorsement because we can't go back to the old Republican guard of yesteryear, a repackaged form of warmed-over corporatism that Nikki Haley represents. The days of putting Americans last, of kowtowing to large corporations, of caving to woke ideology are over."

In a December interview with CBN Chief Political Analyst David Brody, DeSantis seemed to acknowledge he couldn't overtake Trump.

"I would say, if I could have one thing change: I wish Trump hadn't been indicted on any of this stuff," said DeSantis.

Brody then asked if he felt the indictment helped Trump's campaign. "Both that: but then it also has just crowded out so much other stuff and it sucked out a lot of oxygen," DeSantis clarified.

Trump secured another endorsement over the weekend: former Republican presidential candidate and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott.

"Is this Donald Trump country?" asked Sen. Scott to a room full of Trump supporters. "We need Donald Trump now—we need a president who will unite our country."
