After weeks of campaign woes and lackluster primary performances, famed neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is finally dropping out of the presidential race.
Though Carson was an unlikely candidate, his campaign raised million of dollars, which helped catapult him to the top of the pack. Despite his popularity among some, Carson’s campaign has been on the decline since the Iowa Caucuses last month, and now, the candidate has decided to call it quits.
Carson took to his Facebook page to inform his supporters he is suspending his campaign.
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.
While Carson won’t be attending the next Republican debate, he will be attending the Conservative Political Action Committee Conference in D.C. later this week.
