Florida Governor Ron DeSantis met with his top advisers at the Governor's Mansion in Tallahassee to discuss the future of his presidential campaign.

Both DeSantis and his wife, Casey, came to the conclusion that they would end the campaign if it had a chance of succeeding.

The discussions were the result of over a week of discussions, starting on Monday after he secured a second-place position in the Iowa caucuses.

Republican Rep. Chip Roy, a key supporter of DeSantis, participated in the final round of deliberations.

Roy stated that he had engaged in ongoing discussions with DeSantis throughout the campaign and believed he made the correct decision to conclude the campaign early and publicly support Trump

DeSantis intended to prolong his primary battle against Trump and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley beyond the New Hampshire primary this week and into South Carolina

 Despite the availability of funds, DeSantis travelled extensively over the East Coast, making brief visits to South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Florida.

DeSantis cancelled his Sunday appearances on NBC's "Meet the Press," leading allies and foes to believe he might drop out.
