WASHINGTON, D.C. - Ben Carson confirmed what many assumed would happen: he has officially left the race for president.

Carson first said earlier this week he saw no "path forward" following primary elections in multiple states Tuesday. Then, he said he would release specific information about his political future later.

Friday, he said he was suspending his campaign and would lead a group focused on getting Christians to vote in November. He made the announcement at CPAC gathering outside Washington, D.C.
