Larry Elder, a radio host known for his conservative views, has withdrawn from the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. He declared his endorsement for former President Donald Trump – a decision he said he made after reflecting on his options and consulting with his campaign team.

Elder issued a lengthy statement, saying that he made the hard decision to put a hold on his campaign while looking at the future path ahead.

“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.

Elder urged Republicans to support Trump in order to defeat President Joe Biden.
