WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson officially ended his bid for the White House on Friday after failing to win any of the early states in the race for the November election.

“There are a lot of people who love me, they just won’t vote for me,” Carson said in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Carson had announced on Wednesday he did not see a “political path forward” in his campaign for the party’s nomination, and had not attended the Republican debate in Michigan on Thursday.

  1. From an interview with Fortune, here’s what Carson will apparently be doing now that he’s given up running for president:

    “Carson is already listed as the chairman on My Faith Votes’ website along with a video message to Christian voters. In the video, he states that 25 million evangelical registered voters abstained during the 2012 presidential election. He added that considering the 5 million vote margin between the two candidates, they could have made a significant difference in the outcome. “Last time was critical,” Carson states in the video. “But this time it’s life and death in terms of America as we know it.”

    Just what America needs, is someone like Carson misguidedly inciting Evangelicals to vote Republican against their own best interests because he’s too clueless to realize that voting Republican has proven over the past 115 years to be a disaster. If the economy doesn’t tank as it has under most GOP presidents (17 of 20 recessions/depressions since 1900 have occurred during a Republican presidency and the nations GDP and job creation have almost always been mediocre); the GOP president has signed into law policies that have been very detrimental to our country (Nixon was a traitor and crook: Reagan destroyed the very fabric of American life; Bush 2 skyrocketed our debt and was the cause of thousands of Americans being killed and thousands more being maimed for life.)

    One the very last things America needs is an idiot like Carson misguidedly getting fake Christian Evangelicals to vote against their own best interests.
