Carson: There is no 'path forward,' will discuss campaign this week
DETROIT – It appears Ben Carson is leaving the campaign trail.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday, Carson told supporters he sees no "path forward" and will not attend a debate in Detroit Thursday. Carson said he will make a statement about his political future at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday outside Washington, D.C.
The statement about his campaign read, "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.," the Post reported.
Carson, 64, is a retired neurosurgeon.
The announcement comes just days before Louisiana's Presidential Preference Primary Saturday. Carson's name will remain on the ballot in Louisiana.
