Ramaswamy Quits 2024 GOP Presidential Bid

Biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy suspended his bid for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination on Monday and endorsed former President Donald Trump after finishing a distant fourth in Iowa’s leadoff caucuses, Bill Barrow reported for the Associated Press (AP).

Ramaswamy said he made the decision after determining there was no path forward for him in the race, “absent things that we don’t want to see happen in this country.”


The 38-year-old political novice, who sought to replicate Trump’s rise as a bombastic, wealthy outsider, said he called the former president earlier Monday evening to congratulate him on his victory in Iowa.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in second, with former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley just behind in third.


Ramaswamy told supporters gathered at a Des Moines hotel that Trump “will have my full endorsement for the presidency.”


He added: “And I think we’re going to do the right thing for this country. And so I’m going to ask you to follow me in taking our America First movement to the next level.” Trump, in his victory speech a few minutes earlier, said Ramaswamy “did a helluva job” in the campaign.
