Ben Carson Threatens to Leave the Republican Party If…

Republican presidential candidate, Ben Carson is once again siding with for Donald Trump. In recent news, the establishment Republican party got together trying to come up with alternatives just in case the establishment candidates [Jeb, Rubio, Cruz etc] don’t get the nomination. Ben Carson took this as “the beginning of a plan to subvert the will of the voters,” and said if that is the case, he will not be a part of such a party!

“If this was the beginning of a plan to subvert the will of the voters and replace it with the will of the political elite, I assure you Donald Trump will not be the only one leaving the party,” Carson said in a statement.

Carson responded to a Washington Post report that Republican leaders met this week to discuss what to do if no candidate wins a majority of delegates heading into the party convention next July. GOP leaders also reportedly discussed how to cope with Trump’s rise to the top of most GOP polls.

Said Carson:

“I pray that the report in the Post this morning was incorrect. If it is correct, every voter who is standing for change must know they are being betrayed. I won’t stand for it.”

When asked by ABC News about the potential for a third-party run, Carson said, “I have no intentions of running as an independent. But I certainly don’t want to be a part of corruption.”
