GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson announced he is suspending his campaign.
“But even though I might be leaving the campaign trail, you know there’s a lot of people who love me. They just won’t vote for me, but it’s OK. It’s not a problem. I will still continue to be heavily involved in trying to save our nation,” Carson said Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
The campaign hinted it might leave the race after Super Tuesday.
“I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results,” Carson said following dismal results.
The retired neurosurgeon said he would spend the rest of the campaign trying to motivate the Christian voting base.
“Nothing is more important to me than my personal faith, and it is my faith that motivated me to be involved in the political process to begin with,” Carson said. “I believe Christians in this country can easily determine the next president of the United States and all other national and local leaders, should they simply show up at the polls.”
