Armstrong Williams, Dr. Ben Carson’s closest political advisor, shocked the country this week when he dropped some serious hints that Carson will drop out of the race after the Super Tuesday Primary.
This came in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in which Williams slammed the rest of the GOP field for their “dirty tricks” and for using “scorched earth tactics” against Carson.
“While we’re heading to Super Tuesday next week, I think as I’ve said in an op-ed I’ve written recently, he had some tough choices to make. There’s no question… You have to admit, you see the handwriting on the wall,” Williams said, according to The Political Insider. “It’s more than just the bottom line that he’s not doing well. He just feels he’s going to stay in the race until he decides — not the media, not the political establishment, and not his adversaries — for him to drop out.”
“Listen, that time will come. There’s no doubt about that. But it will be Dr. Carson’s decision and his alone. And that may happen between now, and March second,” Williams added, referring to the day after the Super Tuesday primaries. “But still, that will be his decision… When he does make that decision, will be with joy. It will be with pride. It will be with no regrets.”
“[Dr. Ben Carson] will comes to the conclusion that it’s time to move on. And that will happen sooner rather than later,” he concluded.

With his rapidly declining poll numbers, it should come as a surprise to no one that Carson may be dropping out. The only surprise is that it’s taken him this long to do so!
