Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson dropped out the 2016 presidential race Friday, days after declaring there was “no political path forward” for his campaign.
In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Carson said “I am leaving the campaign trail,” but promised he would remain heavily involved “in saving our nation.”
The announcement was widely expected. On Wednesday Carson sent a message to supporters saying, “I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results” and he did not attend Thursday’s Fox News debate in Detroit.
In Friday’s wide-ranging speech, Carson warned against a growing debt, overreaching government social programs and a general breakdown of morals in the country.
“Our pillars of strength are faith and family,” Carson said. “As those things are being eroded, you see what is happening to our nation.”
