|Dr. Ben Carson heads back to Florida. He ends his campaign.|
Dr. Ben Carson isn't attending the Republican debate in Detroit Thursday. He's going to be in the area but there's no campaigning. Most have concluded that he's suspend his campaign. He's saying that he's not out of the race. He's no longer campaigning because he can't find a viable path to winning the nomination.
Well I don't know what I can tell you....It pretty damn well seems like it's over!
Instead of suspending his campaign, he said that at the CNUTS convention, Carson will make his announcement on his political future.
"Even though I will not be in my hometown of Detroit on Thursday, I remain deeply committed to my home nation, America," Carson's statement said. "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. We must not depart from our goals to restore what God and our Founders intended for this exceptional nation."
Carson hasn't won a state since. He is the last place candidate.
In his rise to fame and decline, Carson was the former neurosurgeon for pediatrics at the John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He grew up from poverty to become a success story. He is married with children. Carson was scouted as a potential presidential candidate after he made speech at the National Prayer's Breakfast in 2013. That speech was deemed a dig at President Barack Obama.
There were grassroots organizations urging Carson to run for president.
He made headlines for several outlandish statements throughout his campaign, having once called Obamacare the worst thing "since slavery" and blaming the Holocaust on gun control.
At one point, Carson was second to an insurgent Donald Trump. But his decline came when the junk food media questioned him on many foreign and domestic policy issues. Carson could give complete answers. Trump also batted him down. Trump called Carson "truly a 'low energy candidate' who by far better than Jeb Bush". Carson also had most of campaign team bolt from him after he sought advice from conservative agitator Armstrong Williams. Williams being a diva drew the course for victory. That course led to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz emerging as the two viable candidates.
Initially praised by fellow conservatives for his "truth to power" attitude, Carson found himself in the hot seat during his campaign when it was reported that claims he made about his past, including being offered a "full scholarship" to West Point and stabbing his childhood friend, were exaggerated.
Claiming to be the victim of a "political hit job," Carson often accused the junk food media of scrutinizing him more than his fellow candidates. His disdain for the junk food media helped garner him more support from the conservative base.
Now he's begging for attention now that the junk food media isn't interested in his lame campaign.
Carson is being wooed by Republicans to run in the U.S. Senate race in Florida. The establishment wants to hold on to the seat that Marco Rubio is vacating. Rubio is retiring from his single term in the U.S. Senate to solely focus on running for president.
Rubio who is struggling in the national polls is hoping that a united front could usurp Donald Trump's bid for the nomination.
Carson also has bad blood with Ted Cruz. According to the Carson campaign, Cruz pulled a bitch move on him. He could have won many votes if Cruz didn't run his mouth about Carson ending his campaign after Iowa.
Cruz is facing controversy after Trump and Rubio labeled him a "liar".
Carson might need to practice brain surgery on himself. He was pronounced brain dead and out of the presidential race.
Happy trials to the dullest man running.
