Ben Carson's Officially Out of the Race

Although Ben Carson said after Super Tuesday that he saw “no political path forward” in his campaign, he stopped short of officially suspending it. Now that’s changed.

On Friday Carson officially suspended his campaign during a speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

“I am leaving the campaign trail,” he said, but promised to stay involved in “saving our nation.” 

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.”

Carson also announced Friday that he is taking up the role of chairman of “My Faith Votes,” a nonpartisan organization to “inspire and motivate” Christians to vote.

The consummate outsider, Carson enjoyed a surge in the polls last year, at one point becoming competitive with Donald Trump. But his numbers later plunged, and he has not won a single contest; he was solidly in last place in the delegate count following Super Tuesday.
