DNC Statement on Ron DeSantis’s Exit From the 2024 Republican Primary

In response to Ron DeSantis suspending his 2024 GOP primary campaign and endorsing Donald Trump, DNC National Press Secretary Sarafina Chitika released the following statement:

“Ron DeSantis pinned his entire campaign’s hopes on the same extreme MAGA agenda that both Donald Trump and Nikki Haley are still running on, and now he is the latest member of the GOP to fall in line behind the original MAGA brand. Just like Trump, DeSantis ran a campaign pledging to ban abortion nationwide, rip away access to health care, and gut Social Security and Medicare, while embracing election deniers and whitewashing January 6. Whichever candidate wins the race for the MAGA base will be left running on the same dangerous and unpopular anti-freedom agenda that voters will reject in November.”
