Agreed, I hope Trump picks him up for VP. Carson seems level-headed and has a good heart. He could balance the negatives many people perceive of Trump.

Too uninformed as well. Carson's run for the presidency was just an inspirational speech tour that got out of hand.

Well since Carson was the only other big donor free candidate in the Republican primary I would expect and hope and ask that his supporters strongly consider supporting Donald Trump who is the ONLY Republican candidate in the race that will do what's good for the country and not the what's good for the big donors.

If you have only based your judgement of Trump on editedsound bites promoted by the media I strongly suggest you start looking at longer form interviews with him you can find on YouTube where you will find he is an intelligent , thoughtful and good person. You can find interviews going back 20 years when he was helping get NEW York city out of a financial hole to testimony before the FDIC about how to get the USA out of the financial crisis of the late 80's to more recent ones.

You will get a good sense of the man before his words began to be distorted by others and you will find you like him and trust him.

How is Trump donor free?

His best interests are himself. That is why he donates to his own campaign.

I read that some of his contributions to his campaign are actually loans, although I don't even understand how that could work.

This article says that $12.6 million of his contributions are loans.

It's gonna be weird without an odd number of candidates on stage. First time The Donald won't be in the center?

They'll still sandwich him between Rubio and Cruz. The two of them can't gang up on him as effectively unless they're surrounding him.

They'll put Rubio there, since he's in third and they'd want the frontrunners in the two center positions. It'll probably be in this order tomorrow: Kasich, Cruz, Trump, Rubio.

The physician could not heal himself. It was a good run though.

Darn, I liked him. I would've voted trump but he seems like a fine fellow, and even though he is done running I think he definitely made an impact. I'm guessing most of his votes are going to trump.

I like Carson. He was a talented doctor. I'm backing Trump of course and I hope Carson throws his endorsement behind Trump.

Carson took the GOP offer. Watch he is gonna run for the empty Senate seat being left by Marco Rubio in Florida and the GOP has promised not to run anyone on the primary against him. Carson decided to look out for Carson.

unlikely. Carson's not looking to do any real work like the Senate would require. He's in this or a buck and a he ran the hustle as long as he could, getting his name out there. Mission accomplished.

I honestly believe he just couldn't stomach the idea of going through another one of the debates. He seemed really put out the last time.

Trump will be unstoppable if Carson voters move to him. Hard to tell if they will.

He's already unstoppable. Cruz is coming up short in the bible belt. The rest of the map is Trump territory.

No he's not, as unfortunate as it is. People have been saying Oklahoma was rigged, hard. They've been citing how the polls showed a ~15% lead for Trump against Cruz, with a ~4.5 margin of error, and that the difference between Cruz's and Trump's results is more than four times that. That's blatantly a statistical impossibility. And while him losing there isn't too bad right now, the problem I see with it is it shows people Cruz can win in a state where Trump was projected to win big, and thus hamstring his momentum, costing him future states.

I predict much more fraud, and much more crap like the GOPe getting Romney involved. Trump does not have this election in the bag as many think. He is, after all, going up against a colossal political machine which regularly gets away with breaking the law and rigging elections.

Not yet. He hasn't officially suspended his campaign. Although I would expect that announcement to come Friday.

This is how Ben Carson suspends his campaign. He has to be weird, vague, and special.

His campaign is standing in the doorway waiting awkwardly to leave the party, kind of like he did at the debate.

Uhh. Yeas he has dropped out.

Did you read what he wrote?

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.

Thanks for quoting the entire text for me, bud. But he hasn't OFFICIALLY suspended his campaign. If you had read the last sentence you'd put two and two together: He's suspending his campaign at CPAC and making an endorsement. That's the speculation. Try this article.
