Ben Carson Just Got a New Job

Mar 04, 2016

Ben Carson hasn't won any state primaries, but he's found a new way to influence the upcoming election.

The neurosurgeon is officially the new national chairman for My Faith Votes, a nonpartisan organization that, according to its website, "exists to inspire and motivate Jesus followers to vote." Politico reports that he is expected to announce the new career move on Friday afternoon during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Carson is already listed as the chairman on My Faith Votes' website along with a video message to Christian voters. In the video, he states that 25 million evangelical registered voters abstained during the 2012 presidential election. He added that considering the 5 million vote margin between the two candidates, they could have made a significant difference in the outcome. "Last time was critical," Carson states in the video. "But this time it's life and death in terms of America as we know it."

Dr. Carson has not yet suspended his presidential campaign, though it appears as if that's the direction he's going in. He announced on Wednesday that he wouldn't be participating in the following day's Fox News Republican Debate because he sees no "political path forward" after Super Tuesday. Once neck and neck with frontrunner Donald Trump, Carson failed to win any of the 11 Republican primaries held that day.
