Despite gaining momentum in a crowded field of GOP candidates since starting his bid in June, Burgum dismissed the growing demand to step out of the fiercely competitive arena, despite his outsider status.

“Our goal from the start of the campaign was to represent the best interests of America by bringing the voice of a successful businessman and seasoned governor. Burgum said in a statement on Monday, “We will always remain committed to this and to fighting for those who make our country so extraordinary.” He refrained from endorsing any alternative Republican contender right away
The national security and energy policies of the two-term governor served as the cornerstones of his presidential campaign. Despite the lack of a prominent identity and being a former software entrepreneur and millionaire, Burgum qualified for the first and second Republican debates.
His contentious campaign promise to give a gift card to anyone who contributed at least to his campaign contributed to this accomplishment. The contentious scheme helped Burgum reach the fundraising requirements of the Republican National Committee for the first debate.
Burgum, who struggled to secure a spot on the debate stage for the third time during the clash in Miami last month and showed diminished support for the debate requirements in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Wednesday, criticized the criteria and the producer, the Republican National Committee.
The governor criticized the primary process on Monday for “nationalizing the primary process and stealing the power of democracy” from voters and criticized the criteria and the producer – the Republican National Committee.
He said, “Whether it was several months ago from the Iowa Caucus or for the first time nationally in the New Hampshire primary, limiting competition and ‘confining the field’ by prohibiting new ideas is not their mission. These arbitrary standards ensure benefits for candidates in the heartlands versus those in major media markets. Any debate criteria they set are not truly related to the qualifications to be President.”
His 2024 presidential bid was not Burgum’s first foray into politics. The two-term governor made a political debut in 2016 as a political newcomer, overturning the odds and defeating the popular North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem in the Republican primary.
Burgum, who succeeded former Vice President Mike Pence and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott as the Republican candidate from the region after their withdrawal, has now exited the Republican race.
