President Trump received another endorsement from a GOP presidential candidate who decided to exit the race.

Radio host and conservative political commentator Larry Elder ended his 2024 presidential campaign and endorsed Donald Trump.

“Honored to have just met with Donald Trump to lend him my endorsement for President. I am grateful for the support I received from so many of you across the country,” Elder said.

“He has my full support to Make America Great Again, end the epidemic of fatherless homes, reign in spending, and restore law & order,” Elder said in his statement.

“It’s time to unite behind Donald Trump to beat Joe Biden!” Elder commented.

AP reports:

Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder announced Thursday that he was ending his 2024 Republican campaign for president and endorsing former President Donald Trump.

Elder, who sought to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom in a failed 2021 recall effort, said in a statement that he had made the “difficult decision” to end his bid after “careful consideration and consultation” with his team and to throw his support behind Trump. Trump’s leadership, he said, was “instrumental in advancing conservative America-first principles and policies that have benefited our great nation.”

He said now was the time to unite behind Trump to beat President Joe Biden. He also said he hoped his campaign had shined a light on the issues important to him, including fatherlessness, fighting crime and opposition to the idea that the U.S. is a racist country.

Elder is the fourth major candidate to suspend or end his 2024 GOP bid, following Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, former Texas congressman Will Hurd and businessman Perry Johnson. Johnson also backed Trump on his way out of the race, while Hurd endorsed former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.

After his departure from the race, Perry Johnson endorsed Donald Trump for president.

“Having suspended my campaign, I am officially endorsing @realDonaldTrump for President of the United States. We must beat @joebiden to save this country and Donald Trump is the only candidate who can do it. My full statement is below. #maga,” Johnson wrote.

“Perry Johnson is a brilliant Businessman who has enjoyed great success. Above all, he loves our Country!” Trump commented in a Truth Social Post.

“After a valiant effort, he is now leaving the Race for President to do other things, which I have no doubt will be very successful. It is a great honor for me to have received his Full Endorsement. I will make Perry very proud of this decision, because we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump continued.


Mediaite reports:

Former President Donald Trump showered Republican primary rival Perry Johnson with praise on Monday after Johnson dropped out of the race and endorsed Trump for president.

Johnson — who failed to meet the criteria to take part in the first and second Republican primary debates — suspended his campaign on Friday, before endorsing Trump in a statement on Monday.

“There is now only one candidate in this race who can provide a solution to our nation’s economic, foreign policy and social crises, and most importantly, beat Joe Biden at the ballot box,” wrote Johnson. “That person is Donald Trump.”
