Vivek Ramaswamy Makes Major Announcement After Iowa Caucus Disappointment

Published on

Late that evening, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy terminated his Republican presidential campaign after learning on Monday that Iowa voters did not respond positively to his campaign efforts.

Based on an analysis of 95 percent of the Republican Iowa caucus results by The New York Times, Ramaswamy received 8,449 votes, or 7.7 percent of the total, and finished in a distant fourth place, trailing former President Donald Trump, who received 51 percent of the votes cast.

With 23,240 votes, or 21.2 percent of the vote, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis placed second. Governor of South Carolina and former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley placed third with 21,085 votes, or 19.1% of the total.

Trump will have Ramaswamy’s support in the upcoming election, he declared.

“This entire campaign is about speaking the TRUTH,” he posted on X.

“We did not achieve our goal tonight & we need an America-First patriot in the White House. The people spoke loud & clear about who they want,” he wrote.

“Tonight I am suspending my campaign and endorsing Donald J. Trump and will do everything I can to make sure he is the next U.S. President. I am enormously proud of this team, this movement, and our country,” he wrote.

“There’s no path for me to be the next president, absent things we don’t want to see happen in this country,” he said in conceding, according to the Des Moines Register.

“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,” he said, according to the Associated Press.

DeSantis and Haley, according to Ramaswamy, ought to “follow suit” and withdraw from the competition.

Ramaswamy told his supporters Monday night that his campaign was “founded on speaking the truth not just when it’s easy but when it’s hard,” according to Fox News.

“It is true that we did not achieve the surprise that we wanted to deliver tonight,” Ramaswamy said. “As of this moment, we are going to suspend this presidential campaign.”

“Earlier tonight, I called Donald Trump to tell him that I congratulate him on his victory. And now going forward, he will have my full endorsement for the presidency,” he said.

The Republican presidential nomination will advance to the New Hampshire primary on January 23.
