Presidential candidate and former CIA officer Will Hurd has announced he is dropping out of the 2024 Republican presidential primary and is endorsing former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as the anti-Trump alternative.
“Unfortunately, it has become clear to me and my team that the time has come to suspend our campaign,” Hurd posted on X. “While I appreciate all the time and energy our supporters have given, it is important to recognize the realities of the political landscape and the need to consolidate our party around one person to defeat both Donald Trump and President Biden.”
Hurd went on to back Haley, another favorite candidate of the U.S defense industry and Deep State. “I believe Ambassador Nikki Haley is the best person in this race to do that. Ambassador Haley has shown a willingness to articulate a different vision for the country than Donald Trump and has an unmatched grasp on the complexities of our foreign policy. I wholeheartedly endorse Ambassador Haley and look forward to supporting her for the remainder of this race,’ Hurd stated.
The former Congressman from Texas and CIA officer said he believes “…not enough people are talking about real, achievable solutions to the generation-defining challenges that are in front of us, including artificial intelligence, our new Cold War with China, and the complexity of the ongoing crisis at our southern border.”
