Carson: Other GOP Candidates Used ‘Lies and Dirty Tricks’

Ben Carson, after finishing fourth in the Iowa caucuses, claimed that some of his Republican presidential rivals employed unfair tactics, The Hill reported.

“For months, my campaign has survived the lies and dirty tricks from my opponents who profess to detest the games of the political class, but in reality are masters of it,” the retired pediatric brain surgeon alleged Monday night in a written statement. “Even tonight, my opponents resorted to political tricks by tweeting, texting and telling precinct captains that I had suspended my campaign — in some cases asking caucus goers to change their votes.”

Carson added: “One of the reasons I got into this race was to stop these deceptive and destructive practices, and these reports have only further steeled my resolve to continue and fight for ‘We the People,’ and return control of the government back to them.”

Though some pundits have suggested Carson might drop out of the race, he pledged to continue his White House bid. “Regardless of how the media has attempted to marginalize me and my campaign, I still have the highest favorability rating and have remained among the leading candidates in every major survey,” he said.

Carson pointed out that even though he received just 9.3 percent of the vote in Iowa, he “defeated three former sitting governors and two previous Iowa caucus winners.”
