Indian-American Candidate Ramaswamy Quits Presidential Bid

Indian-American Candidate Ramaswamy Quits Presidential Bid

News Highlights

  • Vivek Ramaswamy exits 2024 Presidential bid after Iowa setback, backs Trump.
  • Despite legal issues, Donald Trump dominates Iowa caucus with 50.9% support.
  • Ron DeSantis finishes second, edging out Nikki Haley, in the race to challenge Trump’s Republican nomination.

In a surprising turn of events, Indian-American entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy has decided to terminate his bid for the 2024 US Presidential Elections. The announcement follows a lackluster performance in Iowa, where Ramaswamy’s spokesperson revealed the decision to withdraw, according to statements reported by the news agency AFP.

Vivek Ramaswamy

American entrepreneur

  • Born: 9 August 1985 (age 38 years), Cincinnati, Ohio, United States
  • Spouse: Apoorva T Ramaswamy (m. 2015)
  • Organizations founded: Roivant Sciences, MORE
  • Party: Republican Party
  • Parents: Vivek Ganapathy, Geetha Ramaswamy
  • Candidate for: 2024 United States presidential election

Ramaswamy, a political outsider and successful businessman, had entered the Republican presidential race with much fanfare. Drawing parallels to former President Donald Trump, whom he had previously praised as the “best president of the 21st century,” Ramaswamy urged voters to embrace a fresh perspective and elevate the “America First” agenda.

In a strategic move, Ramaswamy threw his support behind his former rival, Donald Trump, in an effort to consolidate conservative votes. Trump, despite facing legal challenges, emerged victorious in the Iowa caucus, solidifying his dominance within the Republican Party as he seeks a rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden, as reported by Reuters.

Expressing gratitude on his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump declared, “THANK YOU IOWA, I LOVE YOU ALL!!!” The Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, trailed behind in second place, narrowly beating former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Edison Research projected DeSantis at 21.4%, with Haley at 19.0%, while Trump secured a significant lead with 50.9% of the vote, according to nearly 90% of the expected tally.

While it remains uncertain whether Trump will surpass the 50% mark, a psychological threshold that could strengthen his claim to the nomination, both DeSantis and Haley sought a strong second-place finish to demonstrate their ongoing viability in the race.

Trump’s strategic campaign approach, characterized by skipping debates and minimizing county-by-county politicking, aims to create an aura of inevitability surrounding his nomination bid.

As the Republican candidates navigate a highly competitive field, Trump’s resounding victory in Iowa sets the stage for an intense and closely-watched contest leading up to the 2024 US Presidential Elections.
