Failed GOP Candidate Who Proved Campaign Was Merely Money-Making Machine to Endorse GOP Frontrunner
If he wants it, he can probably have it.
Dr. Carson told Fox News Radio (audio) he is â€œwilling to be an advisor to anyone who is going to have a significant effect on the future of our nation,â€ and is â€œconsidering seriouslyâ€ supporting someone's campaign, Bloomberg News reports.
Carson said he'sÂ â€œcertainly leaningâ€ toward endorsing Trump, adding there are actually "two" Donald Trumps.
â€œThereâ€™s the Donald Trump that you see on television and who gets out in front of big audiences, and thereâ€™s the Donald Trump behind the scenes. Theyâ€™re not the same person. Oneâ€™s very much an entertainer, and one is actually a thinking individual.â€
As far as we know it's illegal to pay for or receive money for an endorsement.
On March 2 Carson announced he saw no path forward to the White House but was refusing to end or suspend his campaign because supporters were still willing to donate. On March 4, still officially a candidate forÂ President, Carson announced he was taking a new job. Only later that day did the Carson campaign announce the candidate was officially dropping out.
