Republican presidential contender Ben Carson said Tuesday that he is planning to overhaul his campaign.
“We are going to certainly be altering some things in the campaign, and we will be talking about that quite publicly next week,” Carson said to Fox Business’ Neil Cavuto.
According to The Hill:
Carson initially told reporters from The Washington Post and The Associated Press that “every single thing is on the table.” Both outlets noted that the interview came without knowledge of his campaign manager, Barry Bennett, leading to speculation that the shake-up could include his top advisers.But Carson told The Hill later that there will be personnel changes, but that his senior staff won’t be fired. Carson’s campaign staff and his personal adviser, Armstrong Williams, have often been at odds over the direction of the campaign.
In mid-December, multiple polls showed Carson in fourth place in the GOP race, with 9.4 percent support, according to Real Clear Politics.
