2016 GOP Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson won’t attend the Fox News debate in Detroit Thursday and seems to be close to ending his campaign.

In a statement, Carson said:

“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 interests 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.”



  1. We are letting a great presidentual choice slip through our fingers… I blame the “debate” moderators for not allowing all the candidates equal voice on the questions, spending all time on the controversial and non-political issues.
    You have robbed the American voter Fox and CNN. Live with the results

    • “We the People” need to stand up and take the blame, there has been too many of us willing to sacrifice Christian principles this nation was founded on and listen to those who think $ and harsh words take the place of moral values.

  2. I’m sorry we are losing Dr. Carson. Integrity apparently has no place in government. For his sake, it’s good he won’t have to contend with the political machine any more but can work for the nation in other ways.

  3. I will say it is over when Dr. Carson says it is over. He has not definitively stated he is not running. It is speculation such as your headline, ConservativeIntel, that causes confusion.

  4. Let’s see what Dr. Carson has to say at CPAC on Friday. I agree that we have just lost the man who would have been the most outstanding President of the last Century!
    Having worked on his campaign for three years, we in Arizona are in deep mourning. A Carson/Kasich ticket with the two Adult Presidential candidates would have been great, with out Trump, the pathological Narcissistic sociopath bully hogging the spotlight!.
