Ben Carson officially dropped out of the presidential race Friday. Carson said this week that he saw no 'path forward' for his presidential campaign and did not participate in Thursday night's Republican debate, but he had not formally dropped out. He said Friday that he realized he didn't have the support or votes to win the contest. 'I did the math,' Carson said of his decision to drop out.
