DETROIT – Dr. Ben Carson remained in single digits in all 15 states in which he has competed in the GOP presidential primary, and won no states or delegates in the Super Tuesday decisions. Wednesday, in a statement, he said he was dropping from Thursday night's GOP presidential debate and suggested, although he did not say specifically, that he was pausing his presidential 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.
Carson went on, saying he will continue a grassroots movement.
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.
I will discuss more about the future of this movement during my speech on Friday at CPAC in Washington, D.C.
