Ben Carson doesn’t “see a political path forward” in the Republican presidential nomination process, and will not attend Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, he said in a statement.

Carson said he’s not planning on officially suspending his presidential campaign and will go into more detail during an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Committee Conference on Friday.
