Referencing the GOP’s loyalty promise, former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley (R) was chastised by Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) for not supporting former President Trump following her withdrawal from the Republican primary earlier this week.

Candidates wishing to advance to the debate stage had to affix their signatures to a loyalty pledge promising to back the party’s eventual nominee, as required by the Republican National Committee (RNC).

“I signed the pledge and you signed the pledge saying that you’re gonna not take your ball and go home. And so I honored the pledge, and she’s gonna have to make a decision about whether she wants to or not.” DeSantis said during a recent appearance on Newsmax.

“But the idea that somehow circumstances have changed — I think we all knew what we were doing when we did that, and you got to make a judgment about whether that’s meaningful to you. And so for me, I tell people, you know, if I say I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it.” he continued.

Haley signed the promise, as did the other front-runners in the contest.

Trump did not sign, despite his refusal to take part in the debates due to his large lead in the polls.

Now, a number of the former presidential contenders, such as DeSantis, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, and Gov. Doug Burgum (R) of North Dakota, have chosen to support Trump since withdrawing from the campaign.
