Another Republican has dropped out of the race for the Republican nomination for the 2024 presidential election:
Things aren't completely lost for Elder fans, though, as the California Republican pointed out which candidate he feels will best carry on his ideas and values if he can't do it himself on the national stage:
Elder, who is 71 years of age, decided on Oct. 26 to suspend his longshot presidential campaign.
Elder expressed both enthusiasm and regret for his decision when announcing it:
"As I look at the path forward, and after careful consideration and consultation with my campaign team, I have made the difficult decision to suspend my campaign," 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."
Not only did Elder wholeheartedly endorse Trump, but he also recommended that other Republicans to the same as well.
He said that all Republicans should just accept that the stranglehold Trump currently has on the leaderboard means that the former president will be the party's nominee in 2024, so we might as well accept it and unite behind him now.
Even though Elder is one of the most influential and popular conservative radio hosts in American history, that popularity was not carrying over to his campaign on a national level.
Unfortunately for Elder, he had failed to qualify for either Republican debate so far, really putting him at a disadvantage when it comes to setting himself apart from the other GOP hopefuls.
Without getting on the debate stage as a longshot candidate, you're never going to be able to better your odds. With Elder not polling where he needed to be, he decided to put his time and support into an idea that had a better chance of paying off:
Supporting Donald Trump.
