Exclusive – Dr. Ben Carson Responds After Column Dropped by Syndicator: ‘I Am Not a Candidate… For Now I Will Leave It at That’

On March 27, 2015, I was advised that I was being dropped as a columnist with Creators Syndicate for allegedly describing myself as a candidate for President of the United States. This was also reported in other media outlets.

First, I have enjoyed my time writing this column and thank all of the readers that have given me feedback. While my words may not have been precise, be assured I have not declared my candidacy for president in any shape or form.

I have been, and am still, exploring a candidacy as a possibility.  In an effort to be straightforward  I did not follow each time the political protocol of qualifying my language with appropriate adjectives and caveats.  This is a hazard of political life that I am still getting used to.

I am not a candidate.  My column repeatedly said I was exploring the possibility of such a monumental action, and for now I will leave it at that.
