More by this author

Donald Trump officially won the Iowa caucus with a decisive 51% of the vote from registered Iowa voters Jan. 15. Ron Desantis came in second with 21.2% of the vote, and Nikki Haley finished third with 19.1% of the vote. Vivek Ramaswamy officially dropped out of the race and gave his support to former president Trump in an announcement made following his loss in the Iowa caucuses.

“As of this moment, we are going to suspend this presidential campaign. There’s no path for me to be the next president absent things that we don’t want to see happen in this country,” Ramaswamy said during the announcement.

Trump’s 56,260 Iowa votes as of Tuesday, Jan. 16, is more than Desantis and Haley’s votes combined, according to Associated Press tracking.

Despite finishing behind Trump, both Desanits and Haley still looked ahead to the next caucus and spoke to their supporters in Iowa about their opportunity to represent the Republican party in the upcoming presidential race.

“We have a lot of work to do. As the next president of the United States, I am going to get the job done for this country,” Desantis said in an announcement to his supporters on Monday night.

Even with a third-place finish, Haley told supporters her finish in Iowa demonstrated the momentum of her campaign.

“When you look at how well we’re doing in New Hampshire, in South Carolina and beyond, I can safely say tonight Iowa made this Republican primary a two-person race,” Haley said.

Now, the three look ahead to the New Hampshire caucus as the candidate for the Republican Party becomes clearer.
