Doug Burgum suspends Presidential campaign

December 4, 2023

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum (R) on Monday announced he was suspending his 2024 Presidential campaign, after failing to qualify for the latest Republican debate set to take place Wednesday. 

In a statement announcing his campaign’s suspension, Burgum wrote, “Our decision to run came from a place of caring deeply about every American, and our mission to reestablish trust in American leadership and our institutions of democracy….Kathryn and I remain committed to fighting for the people who make our nation so exceptional.”

Burgum is the third major Republican candidate to suspend his campaign for President. In October, former Vice President Pence dropped his bid for the GOP nomination, stating that “it’s become clear to me, this is not my time.”

Roughly two weeks later in mid-November, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) suspended his run for President as well.

With less than six weeks before the Iowa caucuses, former President Trump remains far and away the GOP frontrunner according to the latest polls. A NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ poll released Monday found that Trump holds a 50-point lead over his closest challengers Gov. Ron DeSantis (D-FL) and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.
