Second GOP Candidate Drops Out After Being Destroyed in Iowa Caucus

Published on

Asa Hutchinson, the former governor of Arkansas, withdrew from the Republican primary on Tuesday subsequent to his inability to strike a chord with Iowa electors on Monday evening.

In Monday’s Iowa caucuses, former President Donald Trump received 51% of the vote from Republicans.

Candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, who secured the fourth position, withdrew his White House campaign prior to the official tally of ballots and with a meager 7.7 percent support from the brave who braved the weather.

Immediately, he expressed his support for Trump.

The New York Times reports that Hutchinson completed the evening with only 191 votes out of the total 110,298 that were cast, or 0.2 percent support.

He declared his withdrawal from the contest on Tuesday morning and extended his congratulations to Trump on his triumph.

Although he conceded that voters did not purchase his message, Hutchinson maintained that he was the only “principled Republican” in the contest and did not endorse any of the remaining candidates in the primary.

“I congratulate Donald J. Trump for his win last night in Iowa and to the other candidates who competed and garnered delegate support,”  Hutchinson wrote in a statement published on the social media platform X.

He concluded: “Today, I am suspending my campaign for President and driving back to Arkansas. My message of being a principled Republican with experience and telling the truth about the current front runner did not sell in lowa.

“I stand by the campaign I ran. I answered every question, sounded the warning to the GOP about the risks in 2024 and presented hope for our country’s future. Susan and I are blessed beyond measure, and we are grateful for the opportunity to have fought in the political arena for America.”
