Former Republican presidential candidate Will Hurd thinks some of the surviving contenders must set aside “personal ambitions and ego” for the field to stabilize.
MIAMI, FLORIDA May Hurd, a former Republican presidential candidate, thinks that some of the party’s remaining presidential candidates may follow in his footsteps.
Hurd, a former CIA spy turned three-term Texas congressman, terminated his long-shot effort for the Republican nomination in 2024 last month.
“It has become clear to me and my team that the time has come to suspend our campaign,” Hurd stated as he announced his withdrawal from the contest.
After a month, former President Donald Trump, a vociferous opponent of the GOP nomination front-runner, has a message for some other candidates remaining in the race.
Hurd stated to Fox News Digital that more narrowing of the 2024 field is necessary.
“It’s hard to put aside your own personal ambitions and ego, but this is about the country, this is about making sure that we have another 247 years of a country, of a way of life that has become the envy of the world, and that’s what we need to focus on,” he stated.
After Wednesday’s third GOP presidential primary debate in Miami, Hurd was interviewed in the spin room.
The former congressman, who finished his campaign by endorsing Nikki Haley, was at the debate as a surrogate for the former two-term South Carolina governor, who later served as Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations.
“Nikki Haley is the only person who can beat Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and I hope some of these candidates can rally around her.” And tonight, she demonstrated her understanding of the topics,” Hurd stressed. “We live in a difficult world. It will only get more perilous, and Nikki Haley is ready to take the reins from the start.”
Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who qualified for the first debate but did not appear in the second or third, remains in the race for the time being.
Hutchinson, whose shoestring campaign is running out of funds, has stated that he will reconsider his position after Thanksgiving.
