    US Presidential candidate Ben Carson decided not to take part in the upcoming debate in Detroit, Michigan, as he sees no path for his presidential campaign.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson announced on Wednesday he sees no path forward in his presidential campaign and will not attend Thursday’s presidential debate in Detroit, Michigan.

    "I have decided not to attend the Fox News GOP [Republican] presidential debate tomorrow night in Detroit," Carson said. "I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results."

    On Tuesday, voters in dozen US states cast votes to select the country’s two major parties’ presidential nominees, a contest which is also known as "Super Tuesday". Carson did not win in any of the 12 states.

    However, Carson did not say whether he was formally dropping out of the presidential race, but US media reported he was not officially suspending his campaign despite the results on Super Tuesday.

    Carson vowed to continue his grassroots movement on behalf of "We the People" and said he would discuss the future of "this movement" during the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday.
