Dr. Ben Carson was once a leading GOP candidate in the presidential race, but now he is struggling. It became just how clear he has fallen when he made this latest tragic announcement…
According to the Political Insider, all five of Carson’s paid staff members in New Hampshire (a key primary state) have quit their jobs with his 2016 Super PAC to go work for Ted Cruz.
The news is especially crushing since Carson has already lost his campaign manager and communications director.
According to a spokesman, the staff went to work for Cruz because they believe that he is more electable than Carson is. They also complained that Carson hasn’t spent much time in New Hampshire.
A spokesperson said, “We hold Dr. Carson in the highest regard. This is a man we revere, but we think it is important that our party nominate a conservative and get behind a single conservative who can win, and we strongly believe that candidate is Ted Cruz.”
The former head of Carson’s Super PAC, Sam Pimm, also left, and is now endorsing Cruz as well.
Is this the final nail in the coffin for Carson? Or do you think that he still has a fighting chance?
