In an exclusive interview with Yahoo News, Ben Carson declined to say that he is officially dropping out of the 2016 presidential race.
The retired neurosurgeon spoke to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric Thursday afternoon from his home outside Baltimore about the state of the Republican Party and his political future following disappointing Super Tuesday results.
He said he’d make a more definitive announcement Friday when he is scheduled to address the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Carson did say he thinks too much attention has been paid to party infighting and not enough to each candidate’s policies.
“I want people to start thinking about the real issues that are threatening America right now,” he said. “Those issues are not how big someone’s hands are or how long someone’s nose is.”
