US election: Republican Ben Carson officially ends White House bid

Republican Ben Carson ends his campaign to become the next US President

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has officially ended his bid for the White House after failing to win any of the early states in the race for the November election.

“There are a lot of people who love me, they just won’t vote for me,” Dr Carson said in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington.

Dr Carson had announced on Wednesday that he did not see a “political path forward” in his campaign for the party’s nomination.

He also failed to attend the Republican debate in Michigan the following day.

The retired neurosurgeon’s campaign soared last year but steadily lost steam amid questions over his personal narrative and lacklustre debate performances.

Now that Dr Carson has officially dropped out, that leaves Donald Trump and a trio of pursuers: Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich.
