Dr. Ben Carson’s adviser Armstrong Williams tells Breitbart News executive chairman and Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon that Carson may exit the GOP presidential primary between now and the day after Super Tuesday — after a dozen states vote in what’s essentially the first national primary of 2016.

“While we’re heading to Super Tuesday next week, I think as I’ve said in an op-ed I’ve written recently, he had some tough choices to make. There’s no question… You have to admit, you see the handwriting on the wall,” Williams said. “It’s more than just the bottom line that he’s not doing well. He just feels he’s going to stay in the race until he decides — not the media, not the political establishment, and not his adversaries — for him to drop out.

“Listen, that time will come. There’s no doubt about that. But it will be Dr. Carson’s decision and his alone. And that may happen between now, and March second,” Williams said, referring to the day after the Super Tuesday primaries. “But still, that will be his decision… When he does make that decision, will be with joy. It will be with pride. It will be with no regrets.”

Williams indirectly criticized Carson’s GOP primary opponents as well.

“Character, integrity, and honesty should still matter in America,” Williams said, adding Carson “never engaged in dirty tricks. He never used scorched earth tactics against his opponents. He’s always played fair, and even-handed.”

“He will comes to the conclusion that it’s time to move on,” Williams said. “And that will happen sooner rather than later.
