Trump Responds After GOP Candidate ‘Respected by All’ Drops Out and Goes All-In for 45

It’s clear that many of the candidates in the pool of Republicans running for president have little to no chance of getting the nomination for president. So it makes sense that these 1-percent-or-less candidates drop out of the race, giving those who have a following a chance to grow their base. Unfortunately for any candidates in the second tier who may have hoped to increase their following, one of the latest candidates to drop out of the presidential race just pushed his small following into former President Donald Trump’s already massive voter bank, according to Fox News. Popular radio host Larry Elder suspended his campaign on Thursday, endorsing Trump instead. In a statement, Elder said, “Now that I am exiting the race, I am proud to announce my endorsement of Donald Trump for President of the United States. His leadership has been instrumental in advancing conservative, America-first principles and policies that have benefited our great nation,” “We must unite behind Donald Trump to beat Joe Biden and fight back against Biden’s unprecedented election interference and the left’s destruction of America,” Elder added. On Friday, Trump accepted the endorsement, thanking Elder in a post on Truth Social in which he wrote, “So great to have the Endorsement of wonderful Larry Elder. Respected by all, he has so much of importance to say, especially when it comes to fathers and families. Thank you Larry!” Elder, 71, is a longtime commentator and author who first ran as a political candidate in 2021. He was the leading contender to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who was fighting off a recall campaign. Newsom managed to hold onto the office. Elder’s decision represents another winnowing of the GOP field. The best-known Republican to drop out is former Vice President Mike Pence, who announced on Saturday that he was suspending his campaign. He did not endorse any other contender. On Monday businessman and GOP candidate Perry Johnson made the same decision as Elder, declaring in a news release posted on X that Trump is the only one who can win the Republican nomination and the general election. Perry wrote, “After suspending my campaign for President on Friday, there is now only one in the race who can provide a solution to our nation’s economic, foreign policy and social crises, and most importantly beat Joe Biden at the ballot box. That person is Donald Trump.” Other Republicans have also dropped out of the race. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez left the race in August. Vocal Trump critic William Hurd dropped out earlier in October, passing his negligible support over to former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, according to The Hill. [firefly_poll] The Republican field still remains crowded, but Trump holds a commanding lead over his rivals. According to the RealClearPolitics polling average as of Sunday morning Eastern Time, he is 46.5 percentage points ahead of his closets competitor, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. While it is impossible to make a guaranteed prediction, barring an unforeseen event that changes the direction of the race, all roads at this moment seem to lead to Trump.
