Ben Carson Has Lost Four Top Campaign Officials Since Kicking Off 2016 Run

ben carsonThe Ben Carson presidential campaign is having a rocky Friday, with a new Washington Post report saying that Carson has lost four top campaign staffers since he announced his presidential run on May 4th.

Carson’s campaign chairman, deputy campaign manager, national finance chair, and general counsel all resigned from the campaign, and as Carson aides told the Post, “they have not been replaced.”

The current RCP average of all 2016 polls puts Carson at 9.2 percent, tied with Rand Paul for fourth place. And tonight’s report contrasts that with how worried some Carson supporters are about the current campaign unrest.

There’s also a spat involving multiple super PACs set up for Carson. There are two already, competing to be the ones to back Carson, and there’s a third on the way, being started up by the Carson campaign chair who left.
