Ben Carson To Endorse Donald Trump According to Sources

election-2016-carson-trump-presidential-debate*750xx3029-1706-239-155Former Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is planning to endorse Donald Trump for president, according to two sources close to Carson.

It was anticipated that Trump would receive a big name endorsement due to his campaign releasing a planned news conference early Friday morning after the GOP debate. Hours later, it was finalized after Carson met with Trump at his luxury club, Mar-a-Lago resort.

Carson hinted to John Gibson on Fox News Radio that he is “certainly leaning” toward a candidate, all while speaking highly of the front-runner.

“There is two Donald Trumps,” Carson said. “There is the Donald Trump that you see on television and who gets out in from of big audiences, and there is the Donald Trump behind the scenes. They are not the same person. One is very much an entertainer and one is actually a thinking individual.”

Carson ended his campaign last Friday during his CPAC appearance, telling supporters, he saw “no path forward” after a disappointing showing in South Carolina and Super Tuesday.

The endorsement from Carson will likely give the front-runner a boost with GOP base voters from Florida, where the retired neurosurgeon resides along with his devoted supporter base.

Stay tune for PolitiChicks coverage of Trump’s press conference tomorrow morning.
