Ben Carson has a new job.
During his Conservative Political Action Conference address today, the retired neurosurgeon will announce he will serve as national chairman of My Faith Votes, a nonpartisan organization focused on getting Christian Americans to the polls, according to a statement provided to POLITICO.
“Nothing is more important to me than my personal faith, and it is my faith that motivated me to be involved in the political process to begin with,” Carson said in the same statement. “I believe Christians in this country can easily determine the next president of the United States and all other national and local leaders, should they simply show up at the polls. When we do vote, We The People will once again solidify our commitment to the Judeo-Christian values upon which our nation was founded.”
As of early Friday afternoon Carson still hadn’t officially ended his presidential campaign though he did not participate in Thursday night’s Republican debate and said he did not see a “path forward” in his bid for the White House.
He is scheduled to speak at CPAC Friday afternoon.
