After a tough loss in the Iowa primary, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has stepped out of the presidential race, throwing his support behind former President Donald Trump.

“But I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time and donate their resources. We don’t have a clear path to victory. Accordingly, I am today suspending my campaign,” he said in a video posted on X (formerly Twitter).

The field now narrows to two main contenders, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley and Trump, battling for the Republican nomination. The next critical battleground is New Hampshire, with their primary taking place on Tuesday.

Following a third-place finish in Iowa, where Trump led by over 50 percent, Haley is pinning her hopes on New Hampshire to revive her campaign. However, time may not be on her side. A recent Suffolk University/NBC10 Boston/Boston Globe poll shows Trump leading Haley by a significant margin, 57 to 38 percent.

Despite these odds, Haley’s team says she’s forging ahead, determined to shake up the race, reaching out to a diverse group of voters, and focusing largely on the independent electorate.

The question is, can Haley’s strategy impact Trump’s dominance?
