Ben Carson sees no path forward for his GOP presidential campaign
Dr. Ben Carson, after failing to gain ground in his bid to win the GOP presidential nomination is apparently moving towards suspending his campaign. The big winners in last Super Tuesday election were front runner Donald Trump followed by Ted Cruz.
Dr. Carson released the following statement on his website:
“I have decided not to attend the Fox News GOP Presidential Debate tomorrow night in Detroit. Even though I will not be in my hometown of Detroit on Thursday, I remain deeply committed to my home nation, America. I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results. However, this grassroots movement on behalf of “We the People” will continue. Along with millions of patriots who have supported my campaign for President, I remain committed to Saving America for Future Generations. We must not depart from our goals to restore what God and our Founders intended for this exceptional nation.
I appreciate the support, financial and otherwise, from all corners of America. Gratefully, my campaign decisions are not constrained by finances; rather by what is in the best interests of the American people. ”
Carson and his aides reached the decision after a staff meeting this morning in Baltimore after a disappointing finish on Super Tuesday. Carson said he’s not planning on formal suspending his presidential campaign and will go into more detail during an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Committee Conference on Friday.
