(Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson plans to cut his campaign staff in half by eliminating about 50 positions on Thursday, the Washington Post reported.

Carson, the retired neurosurgeon who failed to sustain traction in the first U.S. presidential contest in Iowa, will also reduce salaries for campaign workers as part of a significant downsizing of his campaign, the report said.
