The Cruz-Carson dust up is still causing controversy. Don’t miss the last line of this story.
A lot has been made about a CNN report that claimed Dr. Ben Carson was going to suspend his campaign immediately following the Iowa caucuses, one that was pushed by the Ted Cruz team.
Both Cruz and Carson talked about the ordeal in length at the eighth GOP debate.
Now it’s being said that Cruz asked Carson for a private meeting during a break in the action to discuss the situation in further detail.
“He said he’s sorry that this happened and he wants to sit down and talk,” Carson said in an interview with The Washington Post. “He wants to discuss the whole thing and clear the air.”
The retired neurosurgeon said he mostly listened when his Republican rival approached him on stage but did agree to hear Cruz out in the coming days. They did not set a date.
“To be determined,” Carson said when asked where they may meet. “Doesn’t matter.”
I’m sure the two men will be discussing the CNN story, but what else could they possibly talk about?
Something to keep in mind: all of Carson’s paid Super PAC staffers in New Hampshire quit his campaign and joined up with Cruz.
