Dr. Ben Carson Endorses Donald Trump For President

Posted: Updated:
MIAMI, Florida -

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has endorsed Donald Trump, giving the GOP front-runner a boost ahead of key primaries in Florida and Ohio next Tuesday.

The endorsement from Carson came Friday morning during a news conference is arguably the biggest Trump has received since New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie backed him in February.

The endorsement could help Trump with the evangelical and Republican base voters that helped fuel Carson's candidacy.

Carson suspended his campaign in an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference just last Friday, two days after he announced he didn't see a "path forward" in the race.

In an interview on Fox News Radio Thursday, Carson hinted at his support for the GOP real estate mogul. Asked whether he was planning to back Trump, he replied: "Let's put it this way, I'm certainly leaning."

And despite his past criticism of Trump, Carson said Thursday that there's a side of Trump people don't see in public.
