The New Hampshire GOP Presidential Primary was sure to deliver DeSantis a third place finish.
After Iowa, it became clear the real threat to America First policies was Nikki Haley.
And Laura Ingraham just gave Ron DeSantis a tough lesson that appeared to hit home.
The Republican Presidential Primary field was whittled down to three candidates after Iowa: Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, and Nikki Haley.
Most political experts all agree that Donald Trump has the GOP nomination in the bag after his landslide 30-point victory on Monday in Iowa.
But Nikki Haley is all-in for Tuesday in New Hampshire, where the rules allow Democrats to register as an Independent and vote for her in the Primary.
With polls showing him in a distant third in New Hampshire with only six percent support, Ron DeSantis was facing a tough decision.
But a growing number of conservatives were starting to call on both Haley and DeSantis to drop out of the race given Trump’s massive lead.
And one of those conservatives was Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham.
After Trump’s massive victory in Iowa, Ingraham believes it is time for Haley and DeSantis to face reality and exit the race.
“It’s time for some serious soul-searching by Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis,” Ingraham said.
Ingraham praised Ron DeSantis for his work ethic on the campaign trail, where he held an event in all 99 counties across the Hawkeye State ahead of the Caucus.
She also pointed to his youthful age and predicted he would have a bright future in the GOP.
“As a candidate on the trail, he worked his butt off,” Ingraham said.
“And people forget how young he is,” she continued. “So with, what, three more years as Florida’s governor, he can build an even greater track record of success in that very important state.”
“So a future in the Republican Party for him could be really bright,” she continued, before adding “but he’s simply not going to be President this time around.”
“It’s not happening,” she added. “Trump is simply too powerful and has endured too much.”
Polls prove Laura Ingraham’s statement correct.
Donald Trump won Iowa by a record-breaking 30-points on Monday and is currently leading in New Hampshire with 41.4% support.
But Ingraham did more than just advise DeSantis and Haley to drop out and endorse Donald Trump.
She also warned Ron DeSantis that any attacks against Trump would only backfire.
“And every day that Ron DeSantis stays on the campaign trail criticizing Trump is a day that hurts Ron DeSantis’s political future,” Ingraham warned. “He doesn’t gain anything from it, that’s for sure,” she continued. “And Trump, he’s not hurt by it at all.”
“So, it’s time to step aside and endorse Trump,” Ingraham concluded.
It appears Ron DeSantis took that message to heart and did so this weekend.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
