Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson's message to supporters: "I do not see a political path forward"

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson says he will not attend Thursday night's Fox News GOP Presidential Debate in Detroit.

Carson made the announcement on Wednesday afternoon in a post that was placed on his campaign's Facebook page. In the post he says, "I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results."

The full message can be read below:

"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."
