GOP Presidential Candidate Signals He’s Out

Mar 2, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A Republican presidential candidate who at one point in the race was holding his own against Donald Trump has signaled that he’s getting out of the race. CNN reports that Ben Carson said he doesn’t “see a political path forward” and will skip Thursday’s GOP debate, scheduled for Carson’s home town of Detroit.

Carson “stopped short of saying he was officially leaving the race,” CNN notes. The report adds: “The retired neurosurgeon and his aides reached the decision after a staff meeting Wednesday morning in Baltimore following a disappointing finish on Super Tuesday.”

The report quotes Carson campaign chairman Bob Dees, in an email to supporters, saying the “political efforts must come to a close.”


  1. As the dark horse for 2016, Kasich needs to stay on — come hell or high water.

  2. Kashich is the only remaining presidential candidate that has a proven track record for getting things done, such as having budget surpluses in Ohio, and balancing the federal budget multiple times in the late 1990’s. He’s also the only remaining candidate who’s still running a positive campaign for president, with a realistic vision for the country.
