Ben Carson has pulled out of the Fox Debate and is making a speech instead.
Here’s what the Associated Press had to say.
The Washington Post is already reveling in what they consider some of Carson’s more “over the top” statements like the day he referred to Muslims as “rabid dogs.” I happen to think that was a pretty mild – though apt – comparison.
Here’s the text of an email Dr. Carson reportedly sent to his supporters.
As one of my most dedicated supporters, I wanted you to hear this directly from me.
I have decided not to attend the Fox News GOP Presidential Debate tomorrow night in Detroit.
Even though I will not be in my hometown of Detroit on Thursday, I remain deeply committed to my home nation, America.
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.
I appreciate the support, financial and otherwise, from all corners of America.
Gratefully, my campaign decisions are not constrained by finances; rather by what is in the best interest of the American people.
I will discuss more about the future of this movement during my speech on Friday at CPAC in Washington, D.C.
Thank you for everything.
I have to give Dr. Carson credit, he got a whole lot farther than I thought he would. But then again, so did Donald Trump.
If, in fact, Dr. Carson is dropping out, he can take heart in a good run. He lasted longer than Jeb! on a fraction of the money. On that note, I think it was because – rightly in my opinion – he’s a better man than the former Governor of Florida.
There is an open seat in the U.S. Senate in Carson’s home state. Hopefully he’ll run there and win.
Whatever the result of your speech Dr. Carson, I personally wish you the very best. If you’d consider living in Scottsdale, Arizona, I think you’d make a fine neighbor.
