Jeb Bush was in the race for some time. One of the first to announce his candidacy for President of the United States, and despite having spent about $44,000,000 on his campaign, he suspended his efforts last night after not faring as well as he’d like and need to in the South Carolina primary yesterday.
The stellar ‘cast’ or lineup of Republican field of candidates has thinned from 17 or 18 to 5. There were so many candidates early on and Jeb stayed in the race after others departed; Jeb Bush doesn’t fight for name recognition like others do!
Below, are photos of the remaining 5 GOP candidates and today, a short ‘blurb about Dr. Carson:
Ben Carson is humble, soft spoken and intelligent; a retired pediatric neurosurgeon (Emeritus) who has many common sense solutions to problems facing everyday Americans- which have escaped us for years.
He has the power of his convictions and the power of his faith, but but he never proselytizes. However, his humility should never be confused with weakness. Dr. Carson speaks from the head, which is strongly guided by his heart, faith and intellect.
Soft-spoken, and a political outsider, Dr. Carson rose to national prominence when he spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast some years ago. His candid criticisms of Barack Obama were tolerated (?) only in part, because he was a minister.
Dr. Carson is one of the political outsiders in this ‘race.’ He and Donald Trump shared this honor with Carly Fiorina, another candidate who recently suspended her campaign in this, the year of the ‘outsider’ candidate.
