Carson Explains Why He's Staying in the 2016 Race
Dr. Ben Carson appeared on "The Kelly File" tonight to explain why he's refusing to drop out of the 2016 presidential race.
Carson, who's currently in fourth or fifth place in the GOP field according to most polls, wrote in an op-ed, "It is a fundamentally undemocratic response to insinuate that people should be stripped of their choice 'for the good of the party.' That’s why I’ve vowed to continue our campaign as long as we have revenue and support, until the people have decided."
Carson acknowledged that it would be "difficult" to remain in the race if he doesn't pick up some significant delegates on Super Tuesday tomorrow, but he expects that he will have a good showing.
He explained that American voters are seeing more of the GOP candidates, and he thinks they will want a nominee who's more concerned with problem-solving than mudslinging.
"We should be talking about the issues that threaten our country," Carson stated.
Will you drop out of the race if you don't have a strong showing on Super Tuesday? Megyn asked.
Carson said he's listening to his donors and supporters, and they are telling him not to exit the race.
