Ben Carson Drops A Shocking Threat To The GOP

With Donald Trump holding steady in the polls and Ben Carson’s campaign losing steam, Carson took a play from Trump’s playbook.  He called out the Republican party leadership and threatened to leave the Republican party.

“If the leaders of the Republican Party want to destroy the party, they should continue to hold meetings like the one described in the Washington Post this morning.  If this was the beginning of a plan to subvert the will of the voters and replace it with the will of the political elite, I assure you Donald Trump will not be the only one leaving the party,” Carson said in a statement.

Carson’s threat was in response to a Washington Post report that Republican party leaders discussed plans for a brokered convention during a monthly dinner meeting.  According to CNN, it means that if no Republican candidate secures enough delegates to win the nomination outright, then the delegates could be given up to support a consensus nominee.

The recent dinner is reportedly the first and only time that a brokered convention had been discussed, and at this point there are no plans to make it official.  A senior GOP strategist dismissed the talk as just dinner conversation.
