Oops. Last month Ben Carson was tied with frontrunner Donald Trump. As of yesterday, it looks like he’s a goner.
I’ll note here that Carson got farther than I thought he would, last summer I said he was “burned toast” and would not survive the rigors of a campaign. Looks like he’s going to get to Iowa. Maybe.
Within the last couple of weeks virtually all of Carson’s senior staff have bailed on him.
“We hold Dr. Carson in the highest regard,” Sickles said. “This is a man we revere, but we think it is important that our party nominate a conservative and get behind a single conservative who can win, and we strongly believe that candidate is Ted Cruz.”
Sickles said that joining him in leaving the 2016 Committee and endorsing Cruz are former state Rep. Tim Comerford of Fremont, Joel Lambert of Alton, Jaye Foster of Keene and Emily Lecuyer of Hampstead.
The disclosure comes 10 days after Carson’s campaign operation, which is separate from the 2016 Committee, lost campaign manager Barry Bennett and communications director Doug Watts.
Not only have they bailed on him, they’ve moved to support Ted Cruz.
And then there was this.
I’d love to have Ben Carson as my neighbor. And if I needed brain surgery he’d be at the top of my list. As a President, I think he’s much too nice of a man. I want someone who will destroy everything Barack Obama has done in the previous eight years and simultaneously destroy the Muslims who have declared war on the U.S. In his spare time I’d like to see our next President deport about 15 million illegal aliens.
Ben Carson isn’t that guy.
