Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson will end his presidential bid, saying that Super Tuesday’s election results left him with no “political path forward.”
The announcement marks the closing chapter of a run that showed flashes of promise and fundraising prowess, but suffered a steep fall after Carson’s lack of fluency on foreign policy issues became glaring.
“I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results,” Carson said in the statement.
Armstrong Williams, a longtime Carson confidant, said the retired neurosurgeon doesn’t intend to endorse any of his rivals and has no interest in a bid for any other political office. Rather, he said, he’ll likely enter the world of policy advocacy on issues ranging from education to the national debt.
“I’m sure he won’t support anyone. He will support the eventual nominee,” Williams said.
Williams also emphasized that Carson isn’t quitting the race at the urging of any of his rivals or as part of a bargain. Reports floating around Tuesday night hinted that he had been offered support for a Senate bid in exchange for his departure from the race, but Williams said Carson was not interested.
